The antenna performs M pointings along an axis, a signal being received by the antenna for each of said pointings, each of said signals being, on account of the shape of the antenna pattern,... Agent: Thales
20110291889 - Phased array antenna and a method of operating a phased array antenna: An element of a phased array antenna is provided. The element comprises a phase tracking circuit configured to multiply the in-phase component (In) of a local output signal by the quadrature phase component (Qout) of an external output signal to generate a phase control signal (535) and/or to multiply the... Agent: Phasor Solutions Limited
20110291891 - Method and system for mixed analog/digital beamforming in wireless communication systems: A method is disclosed for mixed analog/digital beamforming in a wireless communication system having transmit and receive antennas and analog front-ends connected to either the transmit antennas or the receive antennas. The method includes determining transmit and receive analog/digital beamforming coefficients by a) determining information representative of communication channels formed... Agent: Imec
20110291892 - Method of determining the direction of arrival of an electromagnetic wave: A method of measuring the bearing angle of arrival θ of HF band electromagnetic signals received by a crossed loop antenna or an Adcock antenna array includes measuring the phase difference Δφ between the signals acquired in the sine and cosine paths of the antenna; measuring the ratio R of...
