Technical Talk

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

IEEE Signal Processing SocietyIEEE Communications Society, and IEEE Windsor Section presents:

“Doppler Estimation for Aeronautical Satellite OFDM System”

Abstract: Air traffic and onboard data access services are expected to have tremendous growth. To meet the challenges, the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) can be deployed to enable the increased usage of broadband services onboard. The Doppler effect is one of the major issues in implementing OFDM modulation in the aeronautical satellite communication system since the received carrier frequency shifts and Doppler spread result in intercarrier interference (ICI). In this seminar, we will evaluate the Doppler frequency estimation using the parametric method, and Angle of Arrival technique (AoA) to reduce the impact of Doppler effect on system performance. The MUSIC, Eigenvector and Minimum Norm algorithms are used to estimate the subcarriers’ shift of received OFDM symbol. We can find that the both methods can be reducing the effect of ICI in aeronautical satellite environment.

Technical Talk

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

IEEE Young Professionals, Windsor Section presents

“Positive Control and Estimation of Dynamic Systems with Applications”

Abstract: Positive systems are rapidly gaining more attention and popularity due to their appearance in numerous applications. The response of positive systems to positive initial conditions and inputs remains in the positive orthant of state space. They offer nice robust stability properties which can be applied to solve many control and estimation problems not only for positive systems but also for general dynamic systems with positivity constraints. This talk will give an overview of positive systems and provide variety of models having positivity behaviors. Several illustrative examples with simulation results support the theoretical development.

Speaker: Bahram Shafai, Professor at Northeastern University. 

Speaker Bio: Bahram Shafai, professor at Northeastern University is also the Director of the ECE Capstone Design Program. He is also a member of the organizing committees for various international and IEEE-conferences. Dr. Shafai is Life Senior Member of IEEE.
