  • D1.0: B5G wireless Tbps Scenarios and Requirements, Nov. 2018. This document presents a description of applicative scenarios and use cases in which ultra-high throughput (of order of Tbps) wireless communication systems are envisaged in bands above 90 GHz: kiosk download, wireless backhauling, Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), drones, server farm, hotspots with Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) multiple users, inter- or intra-chip communications. An insight on the spectrum availability to deploy such wireless communications is provided based on the French National Frequency Agency (ANFR) guidance and recommendations.
  • D1.1: Preliminary Regulation status, Dec. 2019. This document provides an overview of the main regulatory bodies involved in spectrum management, their role and how their respective deliverables interrelate. Particular attention is given to the harmonisation process in Europe and on the necessary complementarity between regulations on frequencies use and harmonised standards applicable to radio equipment. Practical examples of regulatory solutions supporting various fixed and mobile communication applications – under different regulatory regimes – are presented for illustration.
  • D1.2: Final regulation status, Scenarios and Requirements updates, Nov. 2021. Three main 6G use case families are targeted for sub-THz exploitation: high-capacity backhaul; enhanced short-range hotspot; and device-to device communications. This deliverable D1.2 gives an updated definition of use cases and requirements that were first published in deliverable D1.0, and then were considered in BRAVE studies. The status on international and French sub-THz regulation is updated as well, but remains roughly unchanged since the publication of deliverable D1.1. Besides, This document gives a brief overview on visions shared by major equipment vendors, industry alliances, or researchers, on 6G communications and sub-THz/THz spectrum. The BRAVE two-fold paradigm is exposed for the physical sub-THz layer that answers those use cases either with ultra-high data rates or a broadband low-complexity (and low-energy) system or in-between compromises.
  • D2.0: Propagation channel model & RF impairments definition, Feb. 2019. This deliverable gives a state-of-the-art and first BRAVE outcomes related to the characterization and modelling of the sub-THz physical layer (above 90 GHz). This will serve the identification of appropriate radio modulation schemes and efficient waveforms for sub-THz beyond-5G communications; and will contribute to the performance assessment in terms of coverage range, throughput, capacity, signal processing complexity and power consumption.
  • D2.1: Propagation channel model and RF impairments definition and waveform design, Dec 2020. This technical deliverable D2.1, provides valuable results on propagation channel and RF impairments modelling, proposed waveform, related transceiver architecture/algorithm and initial performance evaluation.
  • D2.1 addendum: Waveform Design for low-power ultra-high data rate system, Oct 2021. This document gives complementary results to deliverable D2.1, regarding the definition and test of innovative energy-efficient sub-THz  modulation schemes (index modulation in the filter domain).
  • D3.0: Interface specification, June 2020. The work package WP3 in BRAVE has two objectives: 1) integrate the main project’s innovations and scenarios into simulation test platforms; and then 2) produce evaluation results for demonstration and dissemination of beyond-5G (B5G) technologies found valuable. This deliverable D3.0, which is edited at the earliest stage of the work package WP3, aims at describing the various models or software blocks that will be interfaced or integrated, as well as the evaluation plan.
  • D3.1: Performance assessments, Nov. 2021. After definition of beyond-5G scenarios and new spectrum opportunities in work-package WP1 of BRAVE project, elaboration of new models for the sub-THz physical layer  and design of adapted efficient waveforms within work-package WP2, the proposed solutions are demonstrated in work-package WP3.  This deliverable D3.1 describes the main integrated results of the project: performance of investigated physical layers over various sub-THz environments digitally modelled.
