Evaluating Uncertainty of Microwave Calibrations with Regression Residuals

June 6, 2020
Dylan F. Williams, Benjamin F. Jamroz, Jake D. Rezac, Robert D. Jones
We present a sensitivity-analysis and a Monte-Carlo algorithm for evaluating the uncertainty of multivariate microwave calibration models with regression residuals. We then use synthetic data to verify the performance of the algorithms and explore their

Blind Measurement of Receiver System Noise

June 5, 2020
Daniel G. Kuester, Adam J. Wunderlich, Duncan A. McGillivray, Dazhen Gu, Audrey Puls
Tightly packaged receive systems pose a challenge for noise measurements. The only available receiver outputs are often user data: link benchmark or diagnostic information that can be scavenged with software. These could include data rate benchmark, self

Frequency Invariant Beampatterns for Wideband Synthetic Aperture Channel Sounders

May 29, 2020
Peter G. Vouras, Jeanne T. Quimby, Benjamin F. Jamroz, Alec J. Weiss, Rodney W. Leonhardt, Dylan F. Williams, Catherine A. Remley
This paper derives two novel frequency invariant beamformers (FIBs) for use with wideband synthetic aperture channel sounders. Results using measured data show that the choice of beam pattern can affect the amount of diffuse multipath energy received

A Unified Analytical Approach to Multi-Cell LBT-Based Spectrum Sharing Systems

May 28, 2020
Yao Ma, Somayeh Mosleh, Jason B. Coder
Future unlicensed spectrum sharing scenarios involve multi-cell, multi-tier access of incumbent and emerging wireless systems, such as wireless local area network (WLAN), new-radio unlicensed (NR-U), and long-term evolution (LTE)with licensed assisted

Precision Millimeter-Wave Modulated Wideband Source for Over-The-Air Reference at 92.4 GHz

April 22, 2020
Paritosh Manurkar, Robert D. Horansky, Benjamin F. Jamroz, Jeffrey A. Jargon, Dylan F. Williams, Catherine A. Remley
As the next generation communications technology continues to evolve to utilize millimeter-wave frequencies, calibration methods are needed for the nonidealities related to these frequencies in communications electronics. In this work, we demonstrate a 1

Channel Sounder Measurement Verification: Conducted Tests

April 15, 2020
Jeanne T. Quimby, Jeffrey A. Jargon, Rodney W. Leonhardt, Jake D. Rezac, Paul D. Hale, Catherine A. Remley, Amanda A. Koepke, Robert Johnk, chriss Hammerschmidt, Paul Mckenna, Irena Stange, Mike Chang
Channel modeling often provides a basis for the design and deployment of wireless technology. Engineers design systems to operate under certain expected channel conditions. Channel models are typically based on the statistics of a collection of many

On Selecting Channel Parameters for Public Safety Network Applications in LTE Direct

March 26, 2020
Siyuan Feng, Hyong-Ah Choi, David W. Griffith, Richard A. Rouil
The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) defines various pre-configured channel parameters for the Long- Term Evolution (LTE) Device-to-Device (D2D) communications with Physical Sidelink (SL) Channels. In this paper, we investigate the impacts of

A Graph Database Approach to Wireless IIoT Work-cell Performance Evaluation

February 28, 2020
Richard Candell, Mohamed T. Hany, Yongkang Liu, Karl R. Montgomery, Sebti Foufou
The work-cell is an essential industrial environment for testing wireless communication techniques in factory automation processes. A new testbed was recently designed and developed to facilitate such studies in work-cells by replicating various data flows

On Upper Bounds for D2D Group Size

February 27, 2020
David W. Griffith, Aziza Ben Mosbah
In this paper, we examine the Physical Sidelink Discovery Channel (PSDCH) for out-of-coverage (OOC) Device-to-Device (D2D) Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks using direct discovery for User Equipments (UEs) that are half-duplex. We derive upper bounds for

Alec Weiss, Joshua Kast, Rob Jones, Jeanne Quimby, Rodney Leonhardt, Benjamin Jamroz, Peter Vouras, Dylan Williams, Kate Remley
We provide the frequency response of a high multipath propagation channel using a narrow beamwidth synthetic aperture measurement technique from 26.5 - 40 GHz.

Simplified Ray Tracing for the Millimeter Wave Channel: A Performance Evaluation

February 14, 2020

February 1, 2020
Qiang Sun, Evert Klaseboer, Alex Yuffa, Derek Y. Chan
An efficient field-only nonsingular surface integral method to solve Maxwell's equations for the components of the electric field on the surface of a dielectric scatterer is introduced. In this method, both the vector wave equation and the divergence-free

Field-Only Surface Integral Equations: Scattering from a Perfect Electric Conductor

February 1, 2020
Qiang Sun, Evert Klaseboer, Alex Yuffa, Derek Y. Chan
A field-only boundary integral formulation of electromagnetics is derived without the use of surface currents that appear in the Stratton--Chu formulation. For scattering by a perfect electrical conductor (PEC), the components of the electric field are

Anthony B. Kos, Fabio C. Da Silva, Jason B. Coder, Craig W. Nelson, Grace E. Antonucci, Archita Hati
Imaging solutions based on wave scattering seek real-time performance, high dynamic range, and spatial accuracy at scales spanning from nanometers to thousands of kilometers. Compressed sensing algorithms use sparsity to reduce sample size during image

Effect of Federal Incumbent Activity on CBRS Commercial Service

December 19, 2019
Michael R. Souryal, Thao Nguyen
Federal Communications Commission rules for the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service permit commercial systems to share 150 MHz of bandwidth with federal and other incumbents. To protect the federal incumbents, a spectrum coordinator---the Spectrum
