Haris Volos from Wireless@Virginia Tech and Chris Anderson of the Wireless Measurements Group at the U.S. Naval Academy are working on characterizing the signal propagation of Ultra Wide-Band (UWB) signals in forest environments. The results from these measurements are expected to enable the development of UWB devices for applications such as: environmental monitoring, wildlife tracking, position location, and search-and-rescue operations.
