PULSERS stands for 'Pervasive Ultrawideband Low Spectral Energy Radio Systems'.

The PULSERS project is an EU-funded research project with multi-national participation, which aims at exploration of the Ultra Wide Band (UWB) radio technology and enabling introduction of new services, applications and devices using this technology.

PULSERS project has three phases:
    • Phase I:     Dec. 2003 -- Dec. 2005
    • Phase II:     Jan. 2006 -- Jun. 2008
    • Phase III:   18 months as suggested

PULSERS Project Phase II:
    has total cost €20.7m,
    receives €12.4m from European Commission's 6th framework programme - IST.
