On the Susceptibility of Coded OFDM to Interference: A Simulation Study

January 4, 2018
Jason B. Coder, Yao Ma
The susceptibility of broadband wireless communications signals (e.g., LTE, IEEE 802.11) to interference has been a topic of significant research. In this paper, we implement a simulation-based study on the impact interference can have on the bit error

Adaptive synchronization reference selection for out-of-coverage Proximity Services (ProSe)

October 8, 2017
Samantha M. Gamboa Quintiliani, Fernando J. Cintron, David W. Griffith, Richard A. Rouil
Proximity services (ProSe) is a Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) feature that allows User Equipments (UEs) to communicate without the need of routing the data throughout the network. In this paper, we studied the synchronization protocol used by ProSe

Implementation and Validation of an LTE D2D Model for ns-3

June 13, 2017
Richard A. Rouil, Fernando J. Cintron, Aziza Ben Mosbah, Samantha M. Gamboa Quintiliani
The ability to perform device-to-device (D2D) communication in Long Term Evolution (LTE)-based cellular networks became possible with the introduction of Proximity Services (ProSe) functionalities in the 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP)

Software Tools for Uncertainty Evaluation in VNA Measurements: A Comparative Study

June 9, 2017
Gustavo Avolio, Dylan F. Williams, Michael R. Frey, Sarah B. Streett, Dominique Schreurs, Andrea Ferrero, Michael Dieudonne
We compared three software tools designed for scattering-parameter measurement uncertainty evaluation. These tools propagate uncertainty to calibrated S-parameters by means of a sensitivity analysis. We also validated the sensitivity analysis with Monte

Resonant Acoustic Frequency Shifts Associated with Cracks in Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

June 6, 2017
Ward L. Johnson, Jaemi Herzberger, Sudook A. Kim, Kirsten L. Peterson, Paul R. Heyliger, Grady S. White
Resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) was used in this study to measure shifts in resonant frequency that arise from the presence of cracks in barium-titanate-based multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). This work was motivated by an industrial need for

3.5 GHz Radar Waveform Capture at Point Loma

May 11, 2017
Paul D. Hale, Jeffrey A. Jargon, Peter J. Jeavons, Michael R. Souryal, Adam J. Wunderlich, Mark Lofquist
We describe measurements to create a library of high-fidelity waveforms of federal incumbent radar signals currently operating in the 3550 MHz – 3650 MHz (“3.5 GHz”) band. In the first phase of assembling this library, measurements were collected at Point

Industrial Wireless Systems Workshop Proceedings

May 11, 2017
Richard Candell
Background: Wireless technology has great appeals to many manufacturers, in this case industrial automation systems, which include process control, discrete manufacturing, safety systems, and building automation. Applying wireless sensing and control

Guide to Bluetooth Security

May 8, 2017
John Padgette, John Bahr, Mayank Batra, Marcel Holtmann, Rhonda Smithbey, Lidong Chen, Karen Scarfone
Bluetooth wireless technology is an open standard for short-range radio frequency communication used primarily to establish wireless personal area networks (WPANs), and has been integrated into many types of business and consumer devices. This publication

Dynamic Appliances Scheduling in Collaborative MicroGrids System

May 1, 2017
Hamid Gharavi, Hasnae Bilil
Abstract—In this paper a new approach which is based on a collaborative system of MicroGrids (MG’s), is proposed to enable household appliance scheduling. To achieve this, appliances are categorized into flexible and non-flexible Deferrable Loads (DL’s)
