• ### Performance of edge windowing for OFDM under non-linear power amplifier effects

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):219 - 224
| | PDF (904 KB) | HTML

Edge windowing is a windowing technique for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) signals based on the idea of using shorter cyclic prefix (CP) and longer window lengths at the edge subcarriers while keeping the symbol length fixed. In this study, we investigate the performance of OFDM signals with edge windowing under non-linear power amplifier (PA) effects by observing out-of-band (O... View full abstract»

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):366 - 371
| | PDF (631 KB) | HTML

Underwater communication with autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) has strong demands on the modems caused by the constantly changing signal propagation (multi-path propagation, scattering, diffraction and refraction at thermal layers, etc.) of the underwater channel. These demands typically lead to a modem designed to match specific conditions. In this paper we present an automated model-based p... View full abstract»

In this paper, we investigate the performance of a generic relay system for small cells. The main features include the selection decode-and-forward (DF) scheme, Rician and Rayleigh fading, single or repeated transmissions in direct link, and maximal-ratio combining at destination. We are able to derive a set of closed-form expressions for the end-to-end performance. Based on these formulas, we def... View full abstract»

| | PDF (948 KB) | HTML

Range extension via the use of small aircraft with highly directional antennas that act as relays is a topic of interest in military network technology development. Antenna elements in such designs typically have limited field-of-view (FoV), potentially making interconnectedness among communication nodes dependent on the geometry of the physical network. This paper examines a generic sectorized po... View full abstract»

The goal of this paper is to expand from previously researched liquid metal linear array models into a dynamically driven two dimensional liquid metal array. Simulations were performed using FEKO to prove the concept that a multi-dimensional array will provide the user more control over the direction of the main beam and also the direction of the nulls, making the resulting array useful for spatia...

| | PDF (428 KB) | HTML

In this paper, the problem of single-channel blind source separation (SCBSS) of a mixture of two co-frequency phase-shift keying (PSK) signals with unknown carrier frequency offsets (CFOs) is investigated. Two SCBSS algorithms which are robust to CFOs are proposed to perform separation of the mixture signals. In the first algorithm, the phase changes of the received signals caused by CFOs are trac...

| | PDF (1878 KB) | HTML

The generation of pseudorandom number sequences can be achieved in a variety of ways, with the most secure methods generally requiring substantial processing to generate. Other pseudorandom number generation (PRNG) methods accept a compromise between processing power and security by mixing two independent, but less secure, PRNG outputs with each other. This paper presents a generalized mixing meth... View full abstract»

• ### A new UHF narrowband satellite communications PHY layer for HPW

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):442 - 446
| | PDF (229 KB) | HTML

The High Performance Waveform (HPW) was developed before parallel concatenated codes (PCCC) and serial concatenated codes (SCCC) were in wide use and so it makes sense to take advantage of the advancements in communication theory and processor computation speed that have taken place since its inception. In its current form, HPW transmits a Raised-Cosine Continuous Phase Modulation (1RC CPM) modula... View full abstract»
