  • White Paper: Modeling RF Propagation In Mines Using Wireless InSite

    This paper presents results from modeling RF propagation in a mine using Wireless InSite®. The Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, CO provided the realistic scenario for the model. The path loss exponent was evaluated for a 5m section of the modeled mine by considering three different materials and three different standard deviation of surface roughness values for dry granite. When comparing this simulated data with data retrieved from the Edgar Mine it was determined that the Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) ray tracing code, of Wireless InSite, can portray a communications system within a mine environment.

White Paper: Complex 3D Modeling Of Sea To Land Scenario

This paper presents results from sea to land propagation using Wireless InSite®. The effort explores the effects of various elements in the scene and how they impact the results. The various elements in the scene include the ships out at sea, the ships docked, the docks themselves, the buildings around the dock area, and the material properties of each.

Advancements In Broadband Amplifiers

The basic amplifier design and mode of operation have remained relatively unchanged until recently. This white paper discusses recent advancements in amplifier design that provide flexibility and efficiency, creating a new class of “smart amplifiers.” These new amplifiers allow for user-defined, dynamic, and simultaneous variation of the core amplifier parameters during operation, and enable the optimization of performance for an extremely wide range of applications.

Automotive Radar Technology, Market And Test Requirements

The automotive industry is continuously being equipped with more radar sensors that support drivers in critical situations. Radar makes it possible to quickly and precisely measure the radial velocity, range, azimuth angle and elevation angle of multiple objects, so it is often used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Preparing For The SWARM

Commercial and government programs are aiming to employ “swarms” of UAV’s in domestic and overseas operations. This includes counter-UAS systems, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, near-space and hurricane hunting drones. Swarms of UAVs can be controlled through autonomous UAV synchronization and formation flight, requiring minimal sensor operators.
