- mmW Channel Sounder “Verification Box”, Kate Remley, NIST.
- FreeStar: A 360° Steerable Antenna for Fixed and Mobile mmW 5G Applications, Stefan O’Dougherty, FreeFall. Proof-of-concept demonstration of a dielectric “polyrod” antenna operating at 27 GHz. The hub-and-spoke design of the full system will enable 360 degree steerable-beam coverage for connected vehicles, small base stations, and other mobile systems for 5G.
140 GHz Channel Sounder, NYU Wireless, Yunchou Xing, Ojas Kanhere, Shihao Ju . This live demonstration shows a 140 GHz millimeter-wave channel sounder with a time resolution of less than 2 ns and a large dynamic range. The channel sounder is capable of bi-directional angular measurements and can help with precise indoor localization.
Performance assessment of COTS mmWave radios for drone communications, G. Bielsa, M. Zhang, W. Xia, L. Soularue, T. Clare, M. Mezzavilla, J. Widmer, S. Rangan, D.Shasha. The goal of this project is to assess and understand the feasibility of mmWave radios for aerial (drone) links at low altitude. This preliminary work reports the performance of COTS mmWave radios connected to a DJI Matrice Pro 600 drone.
