71. Wireless Communications in Tunnels for Urban Search and Rescue Robots
Topic: Wireless
Published: 8/18/2008
Authors: Catherine A Remley, George Hough, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G Camell, Robert Johnk, Chriss A. Grosvenor
Abstract: We report on propagation tests carried out in a subterranean tunnel to support improved wireless communications for urban search and rescue robots. We describe single-frequency and ultrawideband channel-characterization tests that we conducted, as we ...

72. Radio Propagation Measurements Before, During, and After the Collapse of Three Large Building Structures
Topic: Wireless
Published: 8/7/2008
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G Camell, Catherine A Remley
Abstract: We are investigating various schemes for detecting first responders and civilians with portable radios or cell phones who are trapped in voids in a collapsed or partially collapsed building. The first part of this effort is to understand propagation ...

73. Attenuation, Coupling, and Variability of Radio Wave Signals Into and Throughout Twelve Large Building Structures
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1545
Topic: Wireless
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, William F Young, Galen H Koepke, Catherine A Remley, Dennis G Camell, Yann Becquet
Abstract: In this report, we investigate radio communication problems faced by emergency responders (firefighters, police and emergency medical personnel) in disaster situations. A fundamental challenge to communications into and out of large buildings is the ...

75. Interference Avoidance in Rapidly Deployed Wireless Ad hoc Incident Area Networks
Topic: Wireless
Published: 4/18/2008
Authors: Mohamed T. Refaei, Nader Moayeri, Michael R Souryal
Abstract: A common strategy for responding to indoor emergency scenarios is to rapidly deploy a group of first responders inside the incident area and an incident command center outside of the incident area. First responders are equipped with radios that allow ...

76. Quantize-and-Forward Relaying with M-ary Phase Shift Keying
Topic: Wireless
Published: 3/31/2008
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Huiqing You
Abstract: Using cooperative transmission, two or more single-antenna users can share their antennas to achieve spatial diversity in a slow fading channel. One relaying protocol that achieves diversity, amplify-and-forward (AF), is striking in its simplicity, b ...

77. Characterization of a 50 GHz Comb Generator
Topic: Wireless
Published: 2/1/2008
Authors: Howard C. Reader, Dylan F Williams, Paul D Hale, Tracy S. Clement
Abstract: We characterize a 50 GHz comb generator measured on a sampling oscilloscope. With careful control of the input power, input harmonics and comb generator temperature, we find the output spectrum to be stable to 0.1 dB and 0.5 degrees. We correct resul ...

78. Soft-Decision Metrics for Coded Orthogonal Signaling in Symmetric Alpha-Stable Noise
Topic: Wireless
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Michael R Souryal, E G Larsson, B M Peric, B R Vojcic
Abstract: This paper derives new soft decision metrics for coded orthogonal signaling in impulsive noise, more specifically symmetric alpha-stable noise. For the case of a known channel amplitude and known noise dispersion, exact metrics are derived both for C ...

79. Real-Time Deployment of Multihop Relays for Range Extension
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/11/2007
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Johannes Geissbuehler, Leonard E. Miller, Nader Moayeri
Abstract: When the range of single-hop wireless communication is limited by distance or harsh radio propagation conditions, relays can be used to extend the communication range through multihop relaying. This paper targets the need in certain scenarios for rap ...

80. Eliminating FFT Artifacts in Vector Signal Analyzer Spectra
Topic: Wireless
Published: 10/1/2006
Authors: Michael McKinley, Catherine A Remley, M. Myslinski, J. S. Kenney
Abstract: We present a method to minimize spectral leakage in measurements of periodic signals made with the vector signal analyzer (VSA) by taking into account the periodic nature of the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). This method negates the need for filtering ...
