Our research focus is to create an online data repository of wireless propagation measurements. This web service will contain radio channel modeling and simulation tools in various frequency bands, environments, and weather conditions such as indoor, outdoor, urban, rural, broadband, narrowband, mobility, precipitation, etc. The project is currently in early stages of development, but will become an important design and testing tool for wireless researchers in both industry and academia.

Students are developing an online database of propagation measurements, including a version of the existent simulation tool SIRCIM (Simulation of Indoor Radio Channel Impulse Response Models with Impulse Noise). It is the goal of the project to create a standard for propagation measurements and researchers to compare and contribute their results. The online database will be stored in an RDF/XML format that can store channel model data and allow for easy searches. This project is sponsored by the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, and the IEEE VTS Propagation Committee
