New technologies to improve the cybersecurity of neural networks, help with the increasingly complex demands of deception analysis, and deliver future 6G wireless systems are being developed by three engineering researchers who have been awarded this year’s UK Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships. A fourth project is focused on the use of autonomous robot swarms for underground excavation.
Focusing on areas of unclassified basic research, the fellowships support cutting edge work that can assist the intelligence, security and defence communities and also provide mentoring support to a new generation of engineers.
The UKIC Postdoctoral Research Fellowships, which are offered by the Government Office for Science and administered by the Royal Academy of Engineering, provide a vital link between academia and the intelligence community. Each awardee receives funding for at least two years of their project and mentorship from a Fellow of the Academy as well as an advisor from the intelligence community.
