An innovative reconfigurable beamforming network concept for multiple high-gain agile and mutually zero-forced beam generation is proposed. Four-port couplers and variable phase shifters are used to synthesize the network. A 2 beam by 7 element beam former is designed and fabricated as proof of concept. A static scenario with the two beams...

A novel stepped-amplitude aperiodic phased array synthesis method is proposed. The presented technique is based on iterative convex element position perturbations and uses pre-defined excitation amplitudes. A 64-element irregular array with two discrete amplitude levels (0.5 at the edge-elements and 1 at the center-elements) is synthesized for...

This paper discusses the advantages and an example of using shaped elevation patterns for 5G base stations. A simple iterative power synthesis method involving the phase of shaped patterns, and suitable for both center- and end-fed sub-arrays, is used. Numerical simulations and some experimental results for an array of linear sub-arrays with...

The system effects and trade-offs of varying the minimal angular separation among multiple simultaneous co-frequency users are investigated for a high-capacity multibeam communication scenario. Through the statistical system simulations, it is demonstrated that the optimal (non-zero) value of the required separation depends on the base station...

The low power efficiency (5-15%) of solid state power amplifiers, working in back-off to guarantee a good linearity, could become the show stopper for some future space and terrestrial communication ventures at Ka-band and above. Semi-active reflector and conformal antennas, using Butler-like matrices between the power amplifiers and the feed...

The performance of space-tapered multi-beam arrays with minimized side lobe levels is statistically evaluated in a line-of-sight propagation environment within a cell sector in terms of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio at the multiple user ends. Comparative analyses are performed to examine the advantages of space-tapered, irregular...
