Telecommunications and Radio Navigation Research
Please note that this website is not maintained by the university and so it is not up to date.
For an overview of our research, please see the panels to the left "Research Areas" and "Research Projects" and sample of our recent "Publications" and "Professional Activities".
The main emphasis of our research is on the application of advanced and/or computationally efficient algorithms for improving the performance, capacity and quality of radio communications (indoors, vehicular, satellite, the novel high altitude platforms etc.) and radio navigation systems. In order to meet the critical need for enhanced and future Telecommunication systems, the parameters that limit performance (propagation environments, interference scenarios, the effect of other users etc.) must be comprehensively investigated and understood. The Group's work involves an extensive range of theoretical analysis, computer simulations and modelling tools in order to obtain full assessment of these factors and their effects on system's performance. The theoretical research work is complemented by a radio communications laboratory. Our research is carried out in collaboration with other partners in Sweden and abroad. The Group is active in many European Union Research Projects.
A general overview of our research published in Sydöstran news paper entitled "Researcher with a high-flying plans" (in Swedish) is available here.

Biography of Professor Abbas Mohammed
Abbas Mohammed is a Professor of Telecommunications Theory and the Head of Telecommunications Research at the School of Engineering, Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden. He was awarded the PhD degree from Liverpool University, UK, in 1992 and the Swedish Docent degree in Radio Communications and Navigation from Blekinge Institute of Technology in 2001. He is the recipient of the Blekinge Research Foundation Award "Researcher of the Year" Award and Prize. He is the supervisor of 3 Master Theses which received the "Best Master Thesis" Award and Prize from Sparbanksstiftelsen Kronan for BTH.
From 2002-2010, he was BTH's Director of the Graduate School of Telecommunications (a collaborative consortium in research and education between 4 Swedish universities) Chaired by the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH. He is also the Swedish representative and member of the management committee to several European Community Project investigating several reserach topics in Telecommunications (e.g., ACTS FP4, FP7 COST 280, 296, 297, IC0802, IC0902, and IC1102).
From 1993 to 1996, he was a Research Fellow with the Radio Navigation Group, University of Wales (Bangor), UK. From 1996 to 1998, he was with the University of Newcastle, UK, working on a European collaborative project within the ACTS (Advance Communications Technologies and Services) FP4 Research Programme that investigated 3G Satellite-UMTS systems. He has been a Consultant to Ericsson AB on Power Control standardization issues for 3G. He has been a visiting lecturer to several universities.
Professor Mohammed is a Fellow of The Institution of Electrical Engineering since 2004. In 2006 he received Fellowship of the UK's Royal Institute of Navigation. He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
He is the Editor-in-Chief of ACEEE International Journal on Communication (USA) and Coeditor-in-Chief of the Journal of Selected Areas in Telecommunications of Cyber Journals (Canada). He is an Associate Editor to the International Journal of Navigation and Observation, a former Editorial Board Member of the Radio Engineering Journal, and an Editorial Board Member of the Mediterranean Journal of Electronics and Communications and the New IET Teknologia Journal to promote the research in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region. He has also been a Guest Lead Editor for several special issues of international journals promoting EU projects activities.
He is the author of over 230 publications, including many invited articles in peer reviewed Journals special issues and over 25 invited book chapters. He is one of the top 10 published and cited reserachers at BTH. He received a Best Paper Award from the International Loran Association, USA, on his work on skywave interference reduction in Loran-C receivers.
Professor Mohammed's research interests are Telecommunication and Navigation Systems, including WiMAX, LTE and future generation mobile communication systems, High Altitude Platforms and Satellite Communications, Cognitive Radio Networks and Dynamic Spectrum Access, GPS and Long range navigation (Loran-C) systems, Interference Analysis between Telecommunications Systems, MIMO Communications, radio wave propagation, channel modeling,
