The Centre for Wireless Innovation is the UK’s largest R&D base in physical layer wireless = new technologies for Mobile, Medical and Space.
CWI is the UK’s largest research, development and exploitation base in physical layer wireless, and one of the strongest in Europe. Our 60 scientists (many award-winners) invent underpinning technologies for Mobile, Medical and Space applications.
We focus our work on massive MIMO and mmWave cellular comms (5G), retrodirective antennas (connected & autonomous vehicles / C-V2X), flat self-steered high gain active antennas (5G and satellite), secure and energy-efficient small cell networks, high-efficiency switched-mode power amplifiers, electromagnetic media, and body-centric antennas (for implantable medical devices), to optimize 5G networks, IoT/Industry 4.0/C-V2X and 5G-V2X, next-gen. EO satellites and connected health.
We're based in the ECIT building (QUB's Institute for Electronics, Communications and Cybersecurity) in the Titanic Quarter, Belfast (across from HMS Caroline and The Pump House).
