Adaptive Array Systems: Fundamentals and Applicationsby Ben Allen
Synopses & Reviews
In the last fifty years, extensive studies have been carried out worldwide in the field of adaptive array systems. However, far from being a mature technology with little research left to tackle, there is seemingly unlimited scope to develop the fundamental characteristics and applications of adaptive antennas for future 3G and 4G mobile communications systems, ultra wideband wireless and satellite and navigation systems, and this informative text shows you how!
Adaptive Array Systems is essential reading for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers in the field of adaptive array systems. It will also have instant appeal to engineers and designers in industry engaged in developing and deploying the technology. This volume will also be invaluable to those working in radar, sonar and bio-medical applications.
Adaptive Array Sensors: Fundamentals and Applications provides a fundamental and basic introduction to the broad aspects of array processing within a general framework. Authors Mohammad Ghavami and Ben Allen explain smart antennas, narrowband, wideband, multi-band beamforming, and a new method employing a rectangular array. Provides a comprehensive introduction to the entire field of adaptive array sensors Presents smart antennas, narrowband, wideband and multi-band beamforming and a new method employing a rectangular array is explained Discusses how adaptive arrays are a key technique for maximizing the capacity of wireless multimedia CDMA networks and transmission beamforming is also discussed along with some of the associated practical constraints Discusses numerous applications, such as spatial channel modelling and equalization, source separation, space-time coding and processing for communications, radar and sonar array processing, and highlights their operational benefits Features chapter summaries and problems at the end of each chapter to aid understanding
