71. 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 ...

72. 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.

73. 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 ...

74. Radio Wave Propagation Into Large Building Structures, Part 2: Characterization of Multipath
Topic: Wireless
Published: 4/2/2010
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Galen H Koepke, Christopher L Holloway, Chriss A. Grosvenor, Dennis G. Camell, John M Ladbury, Robert T. Johnk, William F Young
Abstract: We report on measurements that characterize multipath conditions that affect broadband wireless communications in building penetration scenarios. Measurements carried out in various large structures quantify both radio-signal attenuation and frequenc ...

75. Radio Wave Signal Propagation Into Large Building Structures Part 1: CW Signal Attenuation and Variability
Topic: Wireless
Published: 4/2/2010
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, William F Young, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G. Camell, Catherine A Remley
Abstract: In this paper, we report on our investigation into radio communications problems faced by emergency responders in disaster situations. A fundamental challenge to communications into and out of large buildings is the strong attenuation of radio si ...

76. 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 ...

77. 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 ...

78. Reference Modulation for Calibrated Measurements of Tag Backscatter
Topic: Wireless
Published: 4/14/2011
Authors: Daniel G. Kuester, David R Novotny, Jeffrey R Guerrieri, Randy Direen, Zoya Popovic
Abstract: We present a model and reference backscatter device for calibrating measurements of 860-960 MHz Ultra-High Fre- quency (UHF) tag backscattering. The model relates transmission to and backscattering from the device with a modulation depth calculab ...

79. 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 ...

80. Reverberation-Chamber Test Environment for Outdoor Urban Wireless Propagation Studies
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Helge Fielitz, Catherine A Remley, Christopher L Holloway, Qian Zhang, Qiong Wu, David W. Matolak
Abstract: We introduce a test environment to replicate the well-known clustering of reflections in power delay profiles from urban wireless propagation environments that exhibit late-time delays and reflections. The test set-up combines discrete reflecti ...
