Measurement Challenges for Spectrum Sensing in Communication Networks

April 27, 2021
Author(s)
Dan Kuester, Yao Ma, Dazhen Gu, Adam Wunderlich, Jason Coder, Joseph R. Mruk
We summarize a few key spectrum sensing measurement challenges and recent advances. Laboratory tests of sensing are complicated by their inseparable and often imbedded role in modern hardware. Results are difficult to calibrate because physical parameters

Characterizing LTE User Equipment Emissions Under Closed-Loop Power Control

April 6, 2021
Author(s)
Jason Coder, Aric Sanders, Michael R. Frey, Adam Wunderlich, Azizollah Kord, Jolene Splett, Lucas N. Koepke, Daniel Kuester, Duncan McGillivray, John M. Ladbury
This report presents a laboratory-based characterization of Long Term Evolution (LTE) User Equipment (UE) emissions under closed-loop power control, building on our prior work (NIST TN 2069), which assessed the impact of a large number of factors affecting

AWS-3 LTE Impacts on Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry

February 25, 2021
Author(s)
William F. Young, Duncan McGillivray, Adam Wunderlich, Mark Krangle, Jack Sklar, Aric Sanders, Keith Forsyth, Mark A. Lofquist, Dan Kuester
This technical report details an effort to design, demonstrate, and validate a test methodology to measure the impacts of Long Term Evolution (LTE) User Equipment (UE) emissions in the advanced wireless services 3 (AWS-3) band on aeronautical mobile

Blind Measurement of Receiver System Noise

June 5, 2020
Author(s)
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

Characterizing LTE User Equipment Emissions: Factor Screening

September 30, 2019
Author(s)
Jason Coder, Adam Wunderlich, Michael R. Frey, Paul T. Blanchard, Dan Kuester, Azizollah Kord, Max Lees, Aric Sanders, Jolene Splett, Lucas N. Koepke, Rob Horansky, Duncan McGillivray, John M. Ladbury, Jeffrey T. Correia, Venkatesh Ramaswamy, Jerediah Fevold, Shawn Lefebre, Jacob K. Johnson, John Carpenter, Mark Lofquist, Keith Hartley, Melissa Midzor
Characterizations of long-term evolution (LTE) user equipment (UE) emissions are a key ingredient in models of interference between wireless cellular networks and other systems that must use the same radio frequency spectrum. This report presents (i) a

Interference Tests at Room Temperature Applied to Deployed Low-Noise Receivers

October 18, 2017
Author(s)
Daniel G. Kuester, Duncan A. McGillivray, Adam J. Wunderlich, William F. Young
Wireless interference tests are often performed in shielded anechoic and semi-anechoic chambers near room temperature. The corresponding test condition experienced by a receiver DUT is antenna noise temperature equal to physical room temperature (barring

3.5 GHz Radar Waveform Capture at Fort Story

August 4, 2017
Author(s)
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 this second phase of assembling the library, measurements were collected at Fort

Equivalent Isotropic Response as a Surrogate for Incident Field Strength

July 9, 2017
Author(s)
Dan Kuester, Duncan McGillivray, William F. Young, John M. Ladbury, Ari Feldman, Adam Wunderlich, Sheryl M. Genco
The strength of a radiated field at some location in free space can be described in terms of the equivalent conducted output from an isotropic probe antenna with a specified reference polarization. This metric has already entered use by various standards

3.5 GHz Radar Waveform Capture at Point Loma

May 11, 2017
Author(s)
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

LTE impacts on GPS

February 15, 2017
Author(s)
William F. Young, Ari D. Feldman, Sheryl M. Genco, Azizollah Kord, Daniel G. Kuester, John M. Ladbury, Duncan A. McGillivray, Audrey K. Puls, Andre R. Rosete, Adam J. Wunderlich, Wen-Bin Yang
This report describes the test methodology from “LTE impacts on GPS: Test and Metrology Plan” developed by National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN), and data that are the result of executing the test method. The fundamental goals

Optimal joint detection and estimation that maximizes ROC-type curves

September 1, 2016
Author(s)
Adam J. Wunderlich, Bart Goossens, Craig K. Abbey
Combined detection-estimation tasks are frequently encountered in medical imaging. Hence, optimal methods for joint detection and estimation are of interest because they provide upper bounds on observer performance and can motivate practical image analysis
