WP1: MANAGEMENT

Leader: Lancaster University

The WP1 include all the actions for a successful project management of the scientific, financial and team related aspects of the project. This work package is also aimed at fostering a close and fruitful technical collaboration among the partners and the communications with the European Commission.

WP2: SCENARIO DEFINITIONS, MODELLING AND SPECIFICATIONS

Leader: Goethe University

WP2 is devoted to the identification of future scenarios that will be open by ULTRAWAVE technologies as well as the definition of the specifications both at component and system.

WP3: D-BAND TWT AND G-BAND TWT

Leader: Lancaster University

The aim of WP3 is the design, fabrication and test of two novel high power, wideband Traveling Wave Tube (TWT) with operating frequencies at D-band and G-band. These TWTs will make possible the exploitation of the millimeter wave spectrum providing adequate transmission power to overcome the high link losses that so far have prevented to achieve a useful range beyond 100 GHz.

WP4: D - BAND POINT TO MULTIPOINT WIRELESS SYSTEM

Leader: OMMIC

The component for the D-band PmP system and the final integration will be the target of WP4. It includes the development of the first European full D-band chipset, the filter and the antennas for the final integration of the D-band Transmission Hub and Terminal.

WP5: G-BAND POINT TO POINT WIRELESS SYSTEM

Leader: HFSE

WP5 will develop the component for the G-band PmP system and the integration for outdoor test. It includes all the tasks required to merge for the first time a photonic transmitter, a G-band chipset and a G-band TWT in a G-band PtP system.

WP6: SYSTEM TESTING AND PROOF OF CONCEPT IN REALISTIC SCENARIOS

Leader: Fibernova

This work package is aimed at validating ULTRAWAVE concept. It includes the preparation of the test scenario for the D-band PmP and G-band PtP links and their validation, for the first worldwide, in a real operating environment.

WP7: DISSEMINATION AND EXPLOITATION

Leader: Universitat Politècnica de València

The objective of WP7 is to maximise the impact of ULTRAWAVE technology through activities to exploit project results and dissemination of project results. Different types of dissemination activities, each addressed to a specific target group: scientific community, industrial community, end users such as telecom operators, and the wide-public, will be carried out.
