Abstract:

The major objective of the cross polarization techniques investigation was to investigate the use of cross polarization to expand the bandwidth efficiency over line-of-sight LOSdigital microwave links in the Defense Communications System DCS and to develop techniques that will improve the cross polarization utility. Cross polarization offers an additional approach, other than improved bandwidth efficient modulation techniques, to double bandwidth efficiency by transmitting independent information on orthogonal polarized channels which use identical frequency bands.
