Effective resource handling for military training

On Monday, September 21, Hawar Ramazanali, a PhD student at the Embedded and Intelligent Systems Industrial Graduate School (EISIGS) at Halmstad University, will defend his licentiate thesis. The dissertation is about improving the efficiency of radio and energy resources for technological equipment for military training.

Military training often takes place today with sophisticated simulators where soldiers use real equipment in realistic environments. The entire course of events is recorded and later played back and analysed. Information is sent between the participants as well as to the leaders of the exercise via a radio network with mobile devices that are carried by the soldiers.

– I have done research on how communication in the network can meet real-time requirements. I have also studied how to maximize the number of connected mobile devices in the network and how these devices become as energy efficient as possible, explains Hawar Ramazanali.

The increase of connected devices creates new demands

EISIGS is an industrial graduate school at Halmstad University. PhD students conduct their research at a company as well as at the university. Hawar Ramazanali is linked to Saab Training and Simulation, a business area at Saab AB. The results of his research can be directly beneficial to the company.

– To effectively utilise available resources in wireless communications is an interesting question, not only for academia and industry, but for society at large. Wireless communication is a technique we now use daily, for both business and pleasure. The number of wireless connected devices is predicted to increase somewhere between 10–100 times by the end of this decade. Therefore, energy and radio resources need to be utilised more efficiently, says Hawar Ramazanali.

During military training, information is sent between the participants as well as to the leaders of the exercise via a radio network with mobile devices that are carried by the soldiers. Hawar Ramazanalis focuses on how the communication in this network can be improved.

Next generation telecommunication

Hawar Ramazanali will continue his research in this area to complete his PhD degree.

– So far I have mostly studied 4G technology, but in the future it will be particularly interesting to study 5G. I want to look at what solutions the next generation of telecommunications have and just how they can be used and possibly improved for military training.

Thesis title: ”Resource Handling for Military Training Networks”external link.

When soldiers train, a network of wireless units are used. It is important that the units meet real-time requirements and that they are energy efficient.

To effectively utilise available resources in wireless communications is
an interesting question, not only for academia and industry, but for
society at large".

Hawar Ramazanali will defend his licentiate thesis on September 21.
