31. Power Supply Issues for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Review
Topic: Wireless
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enabled numerous embedded wireless applications in different areas such as military/battlefield, environmental monitoring, and intelligent building systems. They consist of a large number of nodes that need to ope ...

32. Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Program Location-Based Services R&D Roadmap
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: NIST TN 1883
Topic: Wireless
Published: 5/22/2015
Authors: Ryan Felts, Marc Leh, Tracy A McElvaney, Dereck R Orr
Abstract: The Public Safety community is in a period of great transition. Over the next 20 years, technology advancements will enable data, video, and eventually voice communications to migrate from disparate Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks to a nationwid ...

33. 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 ...

34. Radiation Pattern of an UWB Wearable Antenna: A Preliminary Study
Topic: Wireless
Published: 9/24/2012
Authors: Wen-Bin Yang, Kamran Sayrafian
Abstract: Inhomogeneity of the propagation medium in body area networks could have a great impact on the sensor node‰s antenna characteristics. This in turn could affect the quality of the communication links unless the impact of the human body has been pr ...

35. Radio Frequency and Analog/Mixed-Signal (RF and AMS) Technologies for Wireless Communications
Topic: Wireless
Published: 1/5/2009
Authors: Herbert S Bennett, Margaret Huang, John J. Pekarik
Abstract: The challenges facing the RF and AMS community as represented by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors are summarized in this paper.

36. 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 ...

37. Scalable Synchrophasors Communication Network Design and Implementation for Real-time Distributed Generation Grid
Topic: Wireless
Published: 9/1/2015
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: There has been a growing interest in the deployment of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) not only in high-voltage transmission, but in lower-voltage distribution systems. For a Distributed Generation (DG) grid this would require deployment of PMUs at c ...

38. Smart Grid Mesh Network Security Using Dynamic Key Distribution with Merkle Tree 4-Way Handshaking
Topic: Wireless
Published: 10/13/2013
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: Distributed mesh sensor networks provide cost-effective communications for deployment in various smart grid domains, such as home area networks (HAN), neighborhood area networks (NAN), and substation/plant-generation local area networks. This paper i ...

39. Soft Decision Metrics for Turbo-Coded FH M-FSK Ad Hoc Packet Radio Networks
Topic: Wireless
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: B M Peric, Michael R Souryal, E G Larsson, B R Vojcic
Abstract: This paper addresses turbo-coded non-coherent FH M-FSK ad hoc networks with a Poisson distribution of interferers where multiple access interference can be modeled as symmetric a-stable (SaS) noise and a is inversely proportional to the path loss ex ...

40. Soft-Decision Metrics for Coded Orthogonal Signaling in Symmetric Alpha-Stable Noise
Topic: Wireless
Published: 3/1/2005
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 symmetric a-stable noise, which has been used to model impulsive noise. In addition to the optimum metrics for Gaussian (a = 2) noise and Cauchy (a = 1) noise, a class of ...
