AERPAW General Availability Updates and Experiment Examples
Following the AERPAW Fall 2021 Event on November 9-10, and the General Availability announced during the event, AERPAW has started supporting experiment requests from external users. There are presently several emulation experiments that are being supported in AERPAW’s development environment. In one representative experiment, Kamesh Namuduri from the University of North Texas has been exploring drone-to-drone communications in UAV swarms. In another representative experiment, Mihail Sichitiu from the AERPAW team, supported by an NSF BWAC I/UCRC core project, is exploring multi-band communications with drones and the effect of ground reflections on link reliability (example results provided below).
