Active PAR


Standard for Synthetic Aperture Channel Sounding Measurements

The standard defines procedures and signal processing steps for conducting synthetic aperture sounding measurements in wireless channels between 3 GHz to 100 GHz using a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA), mechanical positioner, and transmit and receive antennas. The standard describes how to configure the transmit and receive antennas, mechanical positioner, and VNA. The standard provides coordinate systems for specifying beam steering directions. The standard also lists Fourier processing steps to generate directional Power Delay Profiles (PDPs) and delay slices of the channel impulse response. This standard includes an open-source component with data and source code, including code that reproduces the technical results used to derive the standard. The standard includes simulations that account for spherical phase fronts.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
