Abstract: The research group “Multiaccess and Security Coding for Massive IoT Satellite Systems” is led by Prof. Gerhard Kramer from the Institute for Communications Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and involves the COD group of Prof. Antonia Wachter-Zeh at TUM and the ITX group at the Institute of Communications and Navigation at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The research aims at developing new key technologies for next generation satellite networks for the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Building on an existing research line within Munich Aerospace (where the group devised new advanced techniques for coding and modulation for short packet transmission), the group aims at addressing two fundamental elements of future satellite (and, more generally, wireless) communication systems: the design of uncoordinated multiple access schemes for massive satellite IoT networks, and the construction of lightweight quantum-resistant cryptographic primitives to ensure a long-term secure communication. Relying on a long-lasting and strong collaboration on several research topics, the groups at TUM and DLR will bring together their expertise and tightly collaborate within this activity.
