The Commission promotes research and development in :
Information Theory, Coding, Modulation and Detection;
Spectrum and Medium Utilization, including cognitive and cooperative techniques;
Radar, radio localization and navigation systems;
Green, energy-efficient radio communications.
The design of effective radio-communication and signal processing systems also includes scientific, engineering, and economic considerations. This Commission emphasises the scientific aspects of radio communications, but also provides enabling technologies to other areas of radio science.
