  • PNT: Going Beyond GPS
    PNT: Going Beyond GPS

    As powerful as GPS technology is, it has three key problems. To overcome these problems, new positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) systems are being developed that can enhance the effectiveness of existing GPS, and take advantage of alternatives to conventional GPS.

  • The Effect Of Low-Quality Antennas On Network Backhaul

    This paper describes the effects of various quality variables on microwave antenna performance, and provides insight into the long-term consequences of using a low-cost/ poor-quality antenna. It demonstrates the effect of operators’ preference for low-cost antennas without considering the total cost of ownership, as well as possible ill effects on their quality of service.

  • Radar Waveforms for A&D and Automotive Radar

    This white paper provides a more detailed view on radar waveforms for Aerospace and Defense and commercial radar systems. Waveforms such as pulse and pulse-Doppler signal, continuous wave and frequency shift keying waveforms are described.
