Project SYSTERA

Core Devices and systems for ultra-high speed links in the sub-TERAhertz range

Preview

Investigate and validate building blocks for next generation core wireless networks using frequency bands above 90 GHz. These new spectrum resources are highly challenging to master, requiring the combination of technologies, knowledge of channels effects, efficient beam control, ultra-fast devices and so on.

The aim of the SYSTERA project is to contribute to the development of the ultra-high frequency communication systems beyond 90 GHz, which are part of the 6G-enabling technologies. Above 90 GHz, main interests fall into  the D-band around 140-170 GHz and the H-band around 300 GHz. SYSTERA targets to contribute to preparation of next generations of wireless networks (beyond 5G), expected to take-off within the coming ten years. The project aims to federate a large number of stakeholders from the French community to work towards a shared objective. First and foremost, this would involve the communities of high-frequency devices and antennas, which represent the basic (active or passive, static or dynamic) building blocks for these future systems which are within the scope of the Networks of the Future PEPR. The project is structured around 4 main work areas: 1/ generic key technologies: circuits, antennas, waveforms, 2/ Characterisation, methods & metrology, 3/ Integration/prototyping and 4/ Put together building blocks to enable demonstrators.
