Analysis of an ARQ architecture for Free-Space Optical communications in a LEO-to-Earth scenario

Codi:
D DLROber_4
Estudis
Master Student
Tipus d'estada:
Internship / Master Thesis
Descripció

Context

Optical free-space communications enable the implementation of communication systems with very high data rates, maintaining small terminal sizes and low power consumption at the same time. In the past years, DLR’s Optical Communications System group has been developing a system to transmit data through an optical link reliably. This implies the ability to protect the data from the atmospheric disturbances that cause the degradation of the optical signal. These disturbances are caused by the variation of the physical conditions of the atmosphere in time and space along the optical path, such as changes in temperature, wind speed, etc.

 

These effects present a mayor dynamic range during LEO-to-Earth communications due to the variation in the link geometry between the satellite and the ground station. Providing a forward error correction (FEC) protection that covers the complete flyby pass implies a high computational effort with may hinder the user throughput. Therefore, DLS's Optical Communications System group is studying different techniques in order to adapt the system of the changing conditions of the channel and to maximize the effective throughput for each scenario.

 

One of these techniques is the implementation of an automatic repeat request (ARQ) protocol. However, the characteristics of the channel and scenarios require an in-deep study and analysis prior to its real implementation. Thus, during this master thesis the workload will be focused into the analytical study and simulation of an ARQ protocol. This study will be performed using the Omnet++ simulation environment

 

Tasks:

- Analyzing the existing simulation environment and architecture.
- Expanding the simulation capabilities of the current design.

- Performing benchmarking tests for the different scenarios.

- Optimizing the design in simulation.

Context:

The deployment of 5G systems is expected to involve the integration with satellite segments, in order to provide connectivity to users and machines in the areas where the terrestrial infrastructure is missing or underdimensioned in capacity. In the context of mobile users an important role will be played by multi-access edge computing and distributed caching. Given the heterogeneous nature of data being exchanged (multimedia content with varying popularity, messaging, machine type communications, etc), appropriate allocation of resource is a key task for guaranteeing satisfactory QoS Levels. Given this context, the objective of the thesis will be to study the different components of the allocation problem, taking into account in particular the dynamics of the system and the time-varying popularity of contents being demanded by users.

 


Tasks:

- To survey the most recent network architectures integrating satellite and terrestrial 5G elements.

This implies the ability to protect the data from the atmospheric disturbances that cause the degradation of the optical signal. These disturbances are caused by the variation of the physical conditions of the atmosphere in time and space along the optical path, such as changes in temperature, wind speed, etc.

 

Among the different techniques used by the Optical Communications Systems group there is the variation of the channel data rate. This technique relies in bit extension to enlarge the duration of the transmitted bits. The gain of this technique can be easily calculated from the theory. However, in order to quantify the gain of such technique with the available electro-optical devices it is needed to measure them at the required data rates in the lab. As a previous step for these measurements proper electrical equipment has to be assembled.

 

Tasks:

- Integrating a system capable of transmitting data at he maximum possible data rate inside an FPGA.
- Integrating the required modules to allow changing the data rate among a few selected data rates

- Integrating a software interface to command the change in the data rate

- Expanding the possible data rates selection available

The specific research project they are asked to participate in relates to fundamental studies on optical properties of InGaN multi-quantum well (MQWs) for high brightness LEDs.

 

Optimizing spontaneous emission of light in InGaN MQWs requires deep knowledge of a number of fundamental quantum mechanical processes of low dimensional semiconductor systems, some of which comprise energy band formation in crystals, exciton dynamics, carrier recombination, quantum confinement and spin-orbit coupling. These mechanisms can be studied with the aid of widely extended tools such as those based on Fermi’s golden rule, k.p theory, Schrodinger equation and the effective mass approximation. Combined with efficient computational methods and calibration techniques, the resulting models can accurately quantify relevant performance characteristics, including polarization properties, lifetimes, absorption and emission spectra.

Lumileds R&D is searching for graduate and undergraduate students willing to contribute to the solid state lighting industry. The student/s will work in a high tech industry facility together with a professional research team of electrical engineers and physicists. The specific research project they are asked to participate in relates to plasmonics for Solid State Lighting applications with particular focus on the coupling of plasmonics to luminescent Quantum Dots (QDs) and Quantum Wells (QWs).

 

Investigations on light-matter interactions have revealed a number of strong resonant coupling regimes in schemes involving quasi-particles such as surface plasmons, excitons, polaritons and combinations thereof. Most notably, some of these regimes are achieved by means of surface lattice arrangements of metallic nanostructure arrays (or nanoantenna arrays) wherein the hybridization between molecular excitons and surface lattice resonances has been observed. The properties of these resonant coupling regimes fall at the heart of quantum condensed state of light and matter. Of particular interest are those properties that enable the development of more efficient and highly tunable nanoscale light sources by introducing the ability to control key features such as photon energy, spectral width, directionality and polarization. The fundamental platform to establish this conveniently comprises the coupling interaction between pump light, QDs and metallic nanostructure arrays. Demonstrations have shown that emitted light from the QDs can be enhanced and controlled by structuring the metal to sustain surface plasmons that resonate with the emission. Spatial positioning is critical due to the deep sub-wavelength scale confinement of the surface plasmon resonant fields. This challenge has been tackled by the use of thin film luminescent layers of QDs deposited on substrates with metal nanoantennas supporting surface lattice resonances.

Subject:

The Sensor Processing Chain department designs and develops image processing chains for earth observation satellites. The volume of data produced by new generation satellites is dramatically increasing. To deal with this amount of data, our processing chains are based on latest Cloud and Big Data technologies, such as Apache Spark, Flink and Kafka.
Within this context, we recently designed a set of tools that simulate data processing pipelines, for both image processing and video processing. They provide metrics about performance (throughput, latency) and resource consumption of the processing chains. These tools are developed in Java and Python, and rely on the same big data frameworks as the processing chains.
This training is about improving these simulation tools, such as:
- adding new operators to be able to express more complex pipelines,
- improve data metrics and visualization tools
- integrate these tools in our product line, to improve our ability to maintain our processing pipelines
- study how our simulation tools relates to other simulation tools used in the company, especially the ones used at an upper system level.

Stage Algorithmes de Computer Vision sans dématriçage

Codi F AirbusToul_4
Estudis Grau / Màster
Tipus d'estada Internship
Descripció

Field: Operations and R&D
Speciality: Image processing

 

Subject:

Dans les instruments d'observation de la Terre et pour les cameras embarquées dans les systèmes autonomes, la technique la plus répandue pour l'acquisition d'images couleurs est l'utilisation de matrices de filtres colorés (Bayer, TrueSense, …). L'image brute en sortie du capteur ne contient alors qu'une seule mesure par pixel et doit en général subir une opération de dématriçage (demosaicking) afin de retrouver une image RGB complète. Cette opération est très délicate et peut conduire à des pertes importantes d'information ou à différents types d'artefacts visuels, elle consomme aussi des ressources qui sont limitées en environnement embarqué (avions, drones, satellites). Appliquer directement les traitements images aux sorties brutes du capteur avant l'étape de dématriçage est ainsiune approche moins conventionnel mais offre l'avantage de ne pas modifier le signal avant. Cela nécessite d'adapter les algorithmes usuels.
L'objectif du stage est d'adapter des algorithmes de traitement d'image classiques (estimation de mouvement, détection de points saillants, descripteurs de points, codage/compression…) à des images sans dématriçage. Le stagiaire fera partie de l'équipe Computer Vision du département Chaîne Image de la branche Space Systems d'Airbus Defence & Space et bénéficiera du soutien de ses experts.

Internship in Machine Learning/Big Data: Classification of new Sentinels image times series by using Deep Learning methods

Codi F CESBIO_1
Estudis Màster
Tipus d'estada Internship
Descripció

Field: Machine Learning/ Image processing

 

Subject

Nowadays, recent Sentinel’s missions have started to provide new optical and radar Satellite Image Times Series. The high temporal and spatial resolution of these data constitutes a major asset for land cover monitoring. The exploitation of the synergy of the unprecedented capacity of Sentinel offers new opportunities for land cover classification. Nevertheless, the challenges of the "Big Data" era have become imminent for the exploitation of these massive flow of data. The high dimension of multimodal and multivariate Sentinel’s SITS creates significant challenges for classification algorithms. Nowadays, deep learning methods represent a powerful tool for big data analysis in remote sensing. Deep learning architectures hold great promises for both extracting high-level and abstract features and classification. The originality of the internship relies on the use of deep learning techniques on new multivariate and multimodal SITS

Context:

Bell Labs has helped weave the technological fabric of modern society. Since its founding in 1925, technology from Bell Labs has shaped the ways people live, work and play. Over the past 80 years, the Bell Labs R&D community has made seminal scientific discoveries (9 Nobel Prizes), created powerful new technologies, and built the world's most advanced and reliable networks: The Transistor (1947), Shannon’s Information Theory (1948), Laser (1958), Communications Satellites (1962), The CCD (1969), Unix Operating System and C Language (1969-1972), Digital Signal Processor (DSP) (1979), Optical WDM systems and networks (1990), First 100G Ethernet transmission (2005), Fiber-optic capacity limit (2010), etc.

 

Area:  IP and Optical Networks - Led by Tod Sizer

The IP and Optical Network research lab designs the future of optical communications to meet future demands of applications that have not yet been invented. We push the state-of-the-art in optical and electrical communications in physics, materials science, math, software and optics to create new networks that adapt to changing conditions and go far beyond today’s limitations.

 

Department: Optical Transmission Subsystems – Director Peter Winzer

We have the most advanced laboratories in the field of fiber-optic communications.

 

 

Project:

In year 2010 the theoretical capacity limit of a single-mode fiber was found. The forecasted demand of data traffic will exhaust the capacity of the installed fiber plant by 2020. New fiber-optic designs are required in order to guarantee an efficient and sustainable increase in terms of cost and energy consumption for the following 30 years. Spatial division multiplexing in its two flavors, multi-mode and multi-core fibers, has become the new research paradigm. The scope of the project is to investigate on advanced transmission and detection techniques to exploit the capacity of the new optical fiber.
