The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has been another target of SAN consortium. Two articles relative to D2D have been published:
“An Energy Efficient D2D LTE structure for PMR based on FlashLinQ”, by Xavier Pons (Airbus DS), Christophe Gruet (Airbus DS), Eric Georgeaux (Airbus DS) and Lirida Naviner (Telecom ParisTech), ISWCS’15 (International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems – IEEE) – Brussel – August 2015
“D2D Broadcast Communications for 4G PMR Networks” , by Xavier Pons (Airbus DS), Christophe Gruet (Airbus DS), Eric Georgeaux (Airbus DS) and Lirida Naviner (Telecom ParisTech), NTMS’15 (New Technology, Mobility and Security – IEEE) – Paris – July 2015
Moreover, a PhD Thesis (“Energy Efficient 4G PMR Networks”) has been successfully defended in September 2015 by Xavier Pons (Airbus DS). The heart of this 3 years work is relative to energy efficiency for PMR wireless communications. One aspect of this work is relative to PMR direct mode for which an original D2D scheme is proposed and which constitutes the an important step for SAN solution.
