    Satellite M2M, The IoT, And The Public Sector

    As machine-to-machine and Internet of Things technologies grow congruent with daily life, satellite-based IoT is increasingly relevant to the mix. Given that IoT devices are primarily used to eliminate the need for human interface, as well as provide real-time automated monitoring and control across distances, it’s often essential to enable its functioning in remote regions that lie outside the range of terrestrial network coverage.

High-Efficiency Front-End For Pico And Modular Large Base Stations At LTE Bands 1 And 7

The key to improving energy efficiency lies, fundamentally, in the use of active antennas. However, duplex operation of cellular phones greatly distorts the desired performance of active antennas. To correct this, one must deploy self-diplexed antennas.

802.11ax: 5 Things To Know

The current Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac, works very well in a home environment. However, as with previous Wi-Fi standards, it may reach its limits around 2022 when there could be up to 50 nodes in a home. The 802.11ax network is the next evolution in the IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi standard and will become prevalent in very dense environments, such as urban apartment complexes, college campuses, concert venues, or sports stadiums, where many clients will access the internet over Wi-Fi. This article presents five key aspects of the new 802.11ax network and the next generation of Wi-Fi.

The Future Of E3 And Spectrum Engineering

The roadmap for future military systems considers the fact that the amount of spectrum is finite and advanced militaries define their spectrum use and develop their systems using a very long procurement cycle. As a result, advanced militaries are moving to adopt a system of dynamic spectrum allocation, which involves the use of software defined radio combined with fielding agile systems and spectrum management practices. An impediment to this approach is that the current military procurement and system development effort takes many years. In the current procurement approach, the spectrum and electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) considerations are afterthoughts that are applied in a one-size-fits-all manner. To enable the next generation of military systems and fleet upgrades to operate effectively in the future of dynamic spectrum allocation, we must consider dynamic E3 and spectrum requirement during system development and procurement phases.

    It is a reality that in the last decade signature control engineering has received growing attention from worldwide navies. Among these signatures, RCS (Radar Cross Section) is probably one of the most recognized ones, even to the uninitiated, due to its strong visible impact on the shaping of a ship’s superstructure.

  • Wind Turbines And Aircraft In The Presence Of Ground Clutter

    This short animation shows predicted RCS from an air traffic control radar with an aircraft flying over a wind farm, before and after the static ground clutter (returns from terrain) are filtered out. A basic filter has then been applied to remove the portions of returns with 0-Doppler (static clutter from the ground and wind turbine towers) to approximate what a radar might see after attempting to filter out objects not in motion. Although actual radars have much more sophisticated signal processing, this basic before/after animation of RCS from subsequent scans shows the problem that standard Doppler filtering would encounter when processing returns from a wind farm.
