€ 4M and Portuguese contribution to increase the wireless communications speed up to 10 times

After three years, with the collaboration of 11 international partners and EUR 4 million funded by the European Commission, transmission speeds that achieved 10 Gbps (when the normal is 1 Gbps) were demonstrated for the first time at a global level. All thanks to some devices called resonant tunneling diode (RTDs), which are new wireless transceiver technologies that resembles small, low-cost and energy-efficient chips that allow the ultra-fast data transmission integrated with the optical fibre network.

Unmanned robots capable of monitoring borders with Portuguese signature

The European Union, especially the Mediterranean countries, have been facing a number of challenges with illegal border crossing. The need of enhancing the border security in order to control migrations and especially the fight against crime that occurs during these crossings, has caused the EU to fund the project SUNNY at almost EUR 10 million. The project, which involved 16 European entities, developed a smart sensors network that are carried on-board of unmanned aircraft. These aircraft, best known as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or RPAS (remote piloted aircraft systems), aims to monitor the border areas which, when it comes to SUNNY, are especially the areas related to the ocean environment.
