A New Waveform for Joint Radar and Communications Beyond 5G
Research Project , 2020 – 2022

Increasingly larger frequencies are being used for wireless communication systems. As a result, wireless communication services are getting very close to short-range radar frequency bands, which include both automotive and indoor personal radars. The coexistence of radars and communication devices in the same spectrum in next-generation networks may therefore lead to mutual interference that will compromise radar safety and communication throughput. The EU-funded OTFS-RADCOM project therefore aims to solve the problem of interference in spectrally congested wireless environments. To this end, it will develop an innovative co-design of radar and communications systems via a joint orthogonal time–frequency–space waveform. This will make it possible to implement both functionalities on a single hardware. The project's work could also advance beyond-5G technologies.
