Standard for Field-Portable Synthetic Apertures

This standard describes receiver, antenna, and waveform design principles that support field-portable synthetic apertures used in geolocation, power beaming, antenna measurements, and channel sounding applications at sub-6 GHz and millimeter-wave frequency bands. This standard considers heterodyne architectures for synthetic-aperture receivers that are not Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) or Large Signal Network Analyzers (LSNAs). The standard addresses the impact of front-end antenna design on synthetic aperture performance. The standard also describes the use of waveform modulation schemes, such as pseudo-random noise sequences or linear and non-linear chirps, and their impact on system parameters such as dynamic range, signal-to-noise-ratio, delay resolution, and range-sidelobe level. To help ensure the synthetic aperture outputs are interoperable with other systems, the standard describes how to compute circular or elliptical spatial regions centered on a best-fit point so as to specify the probability that a signal source is located inside the region with an associated confidence level.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
