Current Projects

Aircraft security

Can attackers interfere with important aircraft systems, either from on board on from the ground? I'm testing real aircraft components to look for security problems. This project is part of the Aerosec group.

The paper Triton: A Software-Reconfigurable Federated Avionics Testbed describes the project. I presented the paper at CSET 2019 (slides).


Paper: SparSDR: Sparsity-proportional Backhaul and Compute for SDRs

I developed the reconstruction software and handled the public code release. I am working on applying SparSDR to other projects.
