Pattern Switchable Antenna System Using Inkjet-Printed Directional Bow-Tie for Bi-Direction Sensing Applications

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we propose a paper-based pattern switchable antenna system using inkjet-printing technology for bi-direction sensor applications. The proposed antenna system is composed of two directional bow-tie antennas and a switching network. Continue reading

BSMR: Byzantine-Resilient Secure Multicast Routing in Multi-hop Wireless Networks

ABSTRACT

Multi-hop wireless networks rely on node cooperation to provide unicast and multicast services. The multi-hop communication offers increased coverage for such services, but also makes them more vulnerable to insider (or Byzantine) attacks coming Continue reading

A Network-Aware Distributed Membership Protocol for Collaborative Defense

ABSTRACT

To counteract current trends in network malware, distributed solutions have been developed that harness the power of collaborative end-host sensors. While these systems greatly increase the ability to defend against attack, this comes at the cost Continue reading

Comprehensive Design and Propagation Study of a Compact Dual Band Antenna for Healthcare Applications

ABSTRACT

In this paper, a dual band planar inverted F antenna (PIFA) has been investigated for cooperative on- and off-body communications. Free space and on-body performance parameters like return loss, bandwidth, radiation pattern and efficiency of this Continue reading

Antenna Allocation in MIMO Radar with Widely Separated Antennas for Multi-Target Detection

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we explore a new resource called multi-target diversity to optimize the performance of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar with widely separated antennas for detecting multiple targets. In particular, we allocate antennas of the MIMO Continue reading

Precise Calibration of a GNSS Antenna Array for Adaptive Beamforming Applications

ABSTRACT

The use of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) antenna arrays for applications such as interference counter-measure, attitude determination and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) enhancement is attracting significant attention. However, precise antenna array Continue reading
