EU-funded breakthrough in data transmission

 EU-funded scientist develops smart antenna system


Dr. Günes Karabulut Kurt, funded in the REALMARS project, supported by the Marie Curie Actions, an EU research fund, has designed a smart antenna system which may significantly improve the speed and accuracy of wireless communication and location-based services.

The researcher focused on strengthening an antenna’s receptiveness to an incoming signal, and developed algorithms that read the transmitted data more efficiently.

Services which are dependent on accurate data transmission, such as emergency response, e-health and cyber security, could benefit highly from this breakthrough.
