The Radiocommunications Lab (LRC) is located in Cochabamba (Bolivia), at the Julio León Prado Campus from the Universidad Privada Boliviana. The LRC was created in 2019 and works on the following research areas:
- Radiopropagation and radiometeorology: We study the influence of atmospheric components on the propagation of radiowaves in satellite and terrestrial radio links and estimation models to account for these impairments. With this purpose, we analyze meteorological and rainfall data from different sources.
- Wireless communications systems: We are interested on the analysis, deployment and use of wireless communication systems as a support to the development of Bolivia, from satellite to terrestrial systems.
The activities of the LRC are closely related to the Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering Department. Students take part of research projects under the supervision of the academic staff and can also propose their own research initiatives. The LRC is open to collaborations with universities, industry, and government institutions.
