We are a cutting-edge digital science research center that is pioneering new ways to make real-world systems more secure, while reducing the margin of human error. The Digital Science Research Center has two units: the Digital Security unit and the Digital Telecom unit that focus on building a fully connected and secure digital world.
Our Digital Security unit has five core areas of expertise: Program Verification, Autonomous Software Security, Hardening and Mitigation, Software Security Analysis, and Embedded System Security. It advances automated program analysis and repairs system weaknesses at speed, scale and with precision.
Likewise, our Digital Telecom unit has six core areas of domain expertise: 5.5G and 6G Future Wireless Communication Systems and Networks, Zero Watts and Sustainable Networks, Internet of Vehicles, Non-Terrestrial Networks, RF, Antennas and propagation, and Reconfigurable HW/SW Platforms. It focuses on developing advanced ubiquitous communication systems and technologies to enable the next generation of disruptive applications and services.
Our team brings together computer digital security and digital telecom experts from academia, industry, and the broader scientific community under one roof to solve the most sophisticated digital issues. In the case of security, these span integrating AI-based cyber-security models for the detection, analysis, and patching of vulnerabilities - a challenge, given that computer security is still largely a manual process. In the case of telecoms, a key challenge is shifting from 5G 2D enhanced services to a 6G 3D high-resolution paradigm. Our Digital Telecom unit is committed to enabling very high accurate 3D indoor/outdoor localization, object reconstruction and sensing assisted communications.
An integral part of the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), DSRC is one of 10 specialized research centers at Technology Innovation Institute (TII). TII aims to lead global advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography, quantum, directed energy, digital science, advanced materials, alternative energy, biotechnology, and propulsion technologies.
