51. Rapidly-Deployable Mesh Network Testbed
Topic: Wireless
Published: 11/30/2009
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Nader Moayeri, Andreas Wapf
Abstract: This paper describes a wireless mesh network testbed for research in rapid deployment and auto-configuration of mesh nodes. Motivated by the needs of first responders and military personnel arriving to an incident area, we developed and tested an au ...

52. Assessment of Performance Metrics for Use of Wireless Sensor Networks in Buildings
Topic: Wireless
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Won Suk Jang, William M Healy
Abstract: This paper is part of an effort to develop measurement systems and methods to better predict the performance of wireless sensor and control networks in building applications. Because of the variability in application requirements, the development of ...

53. Measurements to Support Performance Evaluation of Wireless Communications in Tunnels for Urban Search and Rescue Robots
Topic: Wireless
Published: 9/4/2009
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G Camell, George Hough
Abstract: We describe methods for evaluating the performance of the wireless link used for control and telemetry for urban search and recue robots. These methods are based on identification and evaluation of performance metrics that describe impairments to the ...

54. Measurements to Support Public Safety Communications: Attenuation and Variability of 750 MHz Radio Wave Signals in Four Large Building Structures: NIST Technical Note 1552
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Wireless
Published: 8/7/2009
Authors: William F Young, Catherine A Remley, John M Ladbury, Christopher L Holloway, Chriss A. Grosvenor, Galen H Koepke, Sander Floris, Wouter Numan, Andrea Garuti
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 radio communications into and out of large buildings ...

55. Representing Bias-Network Baseband Characteristics when Simulating Intermodulation Distortion
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/15/2009
Authors: Catherine A Remley, C. Michael Olsen, Susan L. Sweeney
Abstract: We demonstrate a method to characterize and represent bias-tees, and other components in the signal path, in an accurate and practical fashion in circuit simulations. The method involves measuring S-parameters of the bias-tee, other surrounding circu ...

56. Practical Applications of Nonlinear Measurements
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/12/2009
Author: Catherine A Remley
Abstract: We discuss the limitations of vector network analyzers in the measurement of nonlinear devices and circuits, including their inability to measure the relative phase between frequency components and the actual impedance in which a device is embedded. ...

57. Measurements in Harsh RF Propagation Environments to Support Performance Evaluation of Wireless Sensor Networks
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/5/2009
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Galen H Koepke, Christopher L Holloway, Dennis G Camell, Chriss A. Grosvenor
Abstract: We describe common performance evaluation methods for wireless devices, including wireless sensors, and how measurements of real-world propagation environments are used to support the evaluation process. We then present representative measurement dat ...

58. Comparison of QPSK and 64QAM EVM for an OFDM WLAN Signal at 2.4 GHz and 4.9 GHz in a Multipath Environment
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Michael McKinley, J. S. Kenney, M. Myslinski, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G Camell, Robert Johnk
Abstract: In this work, we verify experimentally the consistency of EVM across modulation types of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexed (OFDM) signals in two dedicated lab setups. We compared EVMs obtained for different modulation types both in an idealiz ...

59. Electromagnetic Measurements for Counterfeit Detection of Radio-Frequency Identification Cards
Topic: Wireless
Published: 5/2/2009
Authors: Henry Romero, Catherine A Remley, Dylan F Williams, Chih-Ming Wang
Abstract: We investigate a technique for counterfeit detection of radio-frequency identification cards based on the electromagnetic characteristics of the cards rather than the digital information that they transmit. We describe a method of measuring the elect ...

60. The IMS 2009 "Bonus Issue"
Topic: Wireless
Published: 5/1/2009
Author: Catherine A Remley
Abstract: This is an Editorial for a special issue of IEEE Microwave Magazine devoted to the International Microwave Symposium. Kate Remley, the Editor-in-Chief, and two co-editors write about this issue.
