Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Modern and future wireless technologies, such as fifth generation (5G), are utilizing increasingly higher frequencies into the millimetre wave and beyond with their associated ability to support higher information bandwidths.
The increased path loss at these higher frequencies means that the density of wireless access points is also increasing resulting in a closer proximity to secure systems and raising associated electromagnetic security concerns.
Understanding the radio physics of radio propagation of high bandwidth signals at millimetre wave within, into and through buildings and the associated wider built environment is necessary for modelling the electromagnetic security threat posed by these new and emerging systems.
The approach is to produce a field portable system and undertake radio propagation measurements of high bandwidth millimetre wave links in representative (including overseas) built environments and develop a representative propagation model.
Relevance to the Intelligence Community:
To understand the exposure of secure electronic systems to the existing and future millimeter wave radio environment and assess the electromagnetic security threat posed by it.
Key Words: Millimeter Wave, Propagation, Radio Physics, Radio Propagation, Built Environments, Technical Security
