Using Ground as a Transmission Medium. Seminar at Ahlia University, 23rd November 2016


Alaiwi’s papers discussed the use of Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) for telemetry applications using the ground itself as transmission medium. In addition, he discussed a new alternative solution to demodulate Phase Shift Keying (PSK) and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) data compared to conventional techniques.
