Abstract

During Phase II, SARA, Inc. will build on the success of Phase I by 1) evaluating the relative merits of alternate RF channel characterization algorithms for single channel, multipath and multiple channel, multipath RF transmission configurations and 2) developing and demonstrating prototype user applications using the most robust algorithms in conjunction with the unique capabilities of the CASSPER instrumentation system. The potential prototype user applications enabled by these algorithms and CASSPER are wireless local area network (LAN) optimization, electromagnetic interference (EMI) propagation path identification, electromagnetic (EM) source identification/localization, and inverse coupling.
