Professional pagesISAE-SUPAERO professors

Jérôme Lacan

Updated :

Professor at ISAE in the Department of Complex Systems Engineering department - DISC and head of the team "Networks".

Also Member of the laboratory TéSA.

Ph.D. in Computer Science from University Paul-Sabatier of Toulouse.

Habilitation à diriger les recherches, 5 december 2008.

 Teaching Activity

I am involved in the first year course in computer science of the SUPAERO cursus where I manage the course "Information Theory" which introduces the main concepts on data compression and error correcting codes. I also give some lectures in Algorithmic and C language.

In the second year, I am in charge of the course "Cryptography" which presents an overview of cipher systems and security concepts.

I also present Error correcting codes and some satellite communications standards in the third year major "Computer science, Telecommunications and Networks".

Finally, I also manage the course "Algorithmic and programming" in the First year of the Master of Science in Aerospace engineering (MAE1) and I also present the main concepts of video compression in the Master Space Applications and Services (SPAPS).

 Research Activity

My research interests concern coding theory and computer networking. Recent works deals with erasure codes, cross-layer approaches and reliable protocols. Most of these works concerns satellite communications. Some of these contributions are :

- TETRYS protocol, which can be seen as the integration of coding and protocols, allowed us to obtain new results in the research domains of real-time video-conference and delay tolerant networks. All the latest news (publications, demos, projects) are on the TETRYS web site.

- Erasure codes : our latest contribution on this subject is PyRiT (Polynomial Ring Transform) which allows to perform ultra-fast operations in some finite fields.

- Satellite communications : random access methods MusCA and MARSALA and their derivates and optical communications.

- We are developing educational and research activities on blockchains. More information here.
