Biography

Dr. Arslan Ahmed received his Masters degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Manchester, UK where he worked on underwater acoustic communication to improve the underwater communication link design. Dr. Arslan Ahmed then went on to complete his PhD degree from Newcastle University, UK in 2015 and joined Sukkur IBA in 2016. His main research is focused in the field of GPS software receiver designing where he worked on robust tracking loop design for GPS receiver which can track GPS signals under hostile environments such as scintillation and high noise. In this regard, several models of the GPS receiver acquisition and tracking has been developed and implemented and tested by using real GPS data. Dr. Arslan's other research interest involves GPS raw signal processing, adaptive software based GPS receivers, Ionospheric scintillation effects and modelling at European High latitude, Position Estimation algorithms and Investigation of Space Weather Effects on Satellite Communication and Navigation. In addition to this specialized field activities, Dr. Arslan is also working on autonomous unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) where his main interest is to work on the efficient UGV designs to make it fully autonomous with obstacle avoidance capabilities.
