Millimeter-Wave Massive MIMO Channel Sounding, Estimation, and Beamforming for 5G
This project addresses the problem of characterizing the wideband millimeter-wave channel in bad weather, especially during rain, in a cost-effective way. Absolute timing can be derived based on FMCW and GPS-disciplined clock synchronization. Multiple types of waveforms (e.g., linear/nonlinear, single/continuous sawtooth and triangle ramp) can be used for characterizing specific characteristics of the millimeter-wave channel.
he MMU Digital Futures Research Hub is a multi-disciplinary platform for research on the digitalization of our society. The goal is to foster innovative, cutting-edge multi-disciplinary research, and to provide outstanding training for talented young scholars and students through 8 research institutes.
The hub is a community and industry centric entity, with 20 professor chairs that brings together universities, governmental and industrial research organizations, as well as state and federal governments.
