Nanohmics proposes the integration of two major paradigms to optimize and improve current EVA communication systems. To address the implementation of tunable front-end transceivers, nanoimprint methodologies will be used to create nanoscale dimensions sub-systems designed to fit flexible printed circuits requirements. The second paradigm will bring software-defined radio (SDR) mesh networks methodologies as part of an embedded platform based on rad-hard reconfigurable devices (e.g. FPGA) with encryption capabilities.
