Research and Education Laboratory in Information Technologies – Athens Information Technology is an international institution providing high quality graduate education and research in the fields of information technology, telecommunications and technology management. AIT participates in HIATUS via its "Broadband Wireless & Sensor Networks" (B-WiSE) research group. The mission of the group is to contribute to the "Optimally Connected Anywhere, Anytime" vision by directing its research and educational activities towards the study and system level evaluation of Secure Broadband Wireless Communications Systems and Networks. The members of the B-WiSE group are professors and researchers with many years of industrial experience in the development of high performance ICs for communication systems and networks and a solid research background in a diverse number of fields ranging from multimedia signal processing to antenna design and secure communications. The BWiSE lab is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and simulation tools such as a MIMO test-bed, antenna designing tools, FPGA development platforms and OPNET (including its WiMAX module) academic licences. The group has long experience in IST projects from FP5 to FP7. Currently, B-WiSE participates in the ongoing projects CROWN (FP7 FET), SMARTEN (FP7 PEOPLE) and HARP (FP7 STREP).
