Deliverables 2.3 and 7.1 of the SANSA are now available.
Deliverable 2.3 “Shared Access Terrestrial-Satellite Backhaul Network enabled by Smart Antennas” defines the appropriate use cases, with its possible assumptions and constraints, and defines and forms the overall system architecture in an end-to-end fashion. It also looks at the technical challenges to be addressed when designing our proposed solutions and how they are improving the current state-of-the-art. It is also defining the Key Performance Indicators to be used while evaluating, comparing and selecting among different technological solutions. The material documented in D2.3 will allow the SANSA consortium to define the reference scenarios, the overall system architectures, the research challenges/requirements and the Key Performance Indicators.
Deliverable 7.1 “Initial dissemination and exploitation report” is the first document that describes the dissemination, standardization and exploitation plan of the project after 12 months of operation. Precisely, this deliverable proposes an initial plan for dissemination and knowledge management.
The first technical and project management meeting of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme’s project SANSA took place on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 July 2015 at AIT’s premises 44 Kifissias Avenue, Maroussi, Athens, Greece, being hosted by B-WiSe Lab and Professor Constantinos B. Papadias.
The meeting was attended by representatives by all SANSA partners, who reviewed the progress of the first two quarters of the project and set forth the work plan ahead.
The meeting was coordinated by Professor Ana Isabel Perez (CTTC).
Moreover, the participants also had the opportunity to be toured at AIT’s B-WiSE Lab.

Broadband Wireless and Sensor Networks Laboratory
Short-Range Wireless (SRW) communication systems and networks is a focal point of AIT's research. In addition to the extensive R&D work in the field, the B-WiSE group has established a state-of-the-art integrated wireless systems laboratory comprising several WLAN, Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to facilitate its study and system level evaluation of secure, broadband wirele ss and sensor networks. In support of its research in the area of sensor networking, the B-WiSE group has deployed an extensive network of indoor sensors including a multitude of custom-made and COTS type of sensors (Berkeley Motes, Bluetooth, Zigbee nodes, etc).
Specific research activities in the above fields include: secure multimedia transmission over ad-hoc and mesh networks; co-existence, interoperability and interworking issues in the presence of multiple heterogeneous networks; distributed signal processing algorithms and simulation tools for energy-efficient wireless sensor networks.
