    Future generations of wireless communication systems will be designed with the aim of making the best possible use of the limited radio spectrum in order to further increase throughput as well as user-capacity. In this paper, the application of multicarrier CDMA (code division multiple access) within mobile communication systems is discussed. An overview of the main types of multicarrier spread-sp...

    Low-frequency radars have the potential to counter stealth efforts and detect low-flying targets beyond the horizon. This paper gives an overview of the fundamental properties of radars at metric wavelengths, based on research over the past few years conducted at the German Research Institute for High-Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques (FGAN-FHR). It provides an analysis of radar cross-section... View full abstract»
