Abstract:

The research grant supported the study of UWB radio ranging advantages and issues caused primarily by the wide radio frequency bandwidth and fine time resolution capabilities of these systems. Significant progress was made in understanding how to cooperatively range in a dense multipath environment. In addition, UWB propagation measurements were made in a shipboard environment to determine the difficulties in positioning using RF signals in a large metallic enclosure, and issues in sharing a large RF bandwidth with other narrowband radio systems were explored.
