Because the possibility of array element failure during operation cannot be ruled out [1], selfrecoverable antenna array systems have recently been receiving considerable attention in modern radar technology. Thus, an approach to maintaining the radi

This work studies the three-dimensional (3D) identification performance of UHF RFID systems with commodity hardware. Detailed three-dimensional propagation modeling is developed, with ray-tracing that allows examination of tag- as well as reader-ante

This paper explains our proposed wireless security and monitoring system using array antenna, referred to as array sensor. The proposed system exploits an antenna array on the receiver side and decomposes received signals into eigenvectors and eigenv

This paper presents new study and design of microstrip phased array antennas used for extending the coverage area of RFID applications (ISO 18000-4 for 2.45GHz). The main idea is to modifying the antenna radiation pattern in order to extend the cover

Switched array antenna with six microstrip patch elements was designed and characterized for UHF RFID application. A hexagonal-shaped RF switching circuit board was developed to select one of the array elements to read RFID tags surrounding the RFID

This paper addresses the issue of channel estimation (CE) for multiple antennas. Multi-antenna systems at the transmitter and/or receiver can improve the receivers performance in the presence of fading. Comparing the space-time coding (STC) schemes a

Coverage area is an important performance metric for RFID systems, especially those used for inventory management. As such, there are a range of methods being developed to try to increase the coverage area of RFID systems without requiring additional

This article presents simulation results for characterizing an 11 × 11 antenna array using phaseless planar near-field technique. The outcomes of this analysis show that with the help of the well-known iterative Fourier transform and with minimal a p

A circularly polarized antenna with low cost foam substrate and film is proposed to obtain wide bandwidth and high performance. The proposed antenna is composed of stacked corner-truncated patches with sequential rotation feed. Having above 20% retur

A dual-corner-fed square patch is proposed to realize the dual-polarization operation. Its analysis results are compared with those of a dual-edge-fed patch. A new single-layer hybrid array of these elements has been designed, fabricated and measured

A construction, calculation relationships and directive characteristics of travelling wave tunable array with central excitation are studied. It is shown that by variation of the corner angle of this array the constant direction of main lobe maximum

A multiple null algorithm that can adjust the number, width and depth of multiple nulls in accordance with the environment requirements is proposed for the improvement of the interference cancellation capability of two-dimensional array antennas. The

Summary form only given, as follows. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology provides an effective tool for managing traceability along food supply chains. This is because it allows automatic digital registration of data, and therefore reduc

A novel analytically based synthesis technique for the design of sparse antenna arrays is presented. The proposed technique permits the synthesis of linear arrays with arbitrarily shaped patterns and it is applied here to the design of an Earth-cover
