About the Project
We are working closely with a company that designs new technology for airplanes and air traffic controllers. currently ATCs need to man their posts using old wired technology, especially on their headsets which at their current state are wired. This makes moving around difficult. We need to design a new system that will have the minimum delay (as this is a mission critical application) both on the headsets and on the overall network.
Students with a communication and hardware background are most fitted for this research project. Students that would already have a Masters degree will be preferred. Having some publications would also be preferable.
There are a number of other projects to do with ATCs in our list.
Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Research-degrees/Research-degree-funding. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
