—Results obtained from using a geometrically based, single-bounce propagation model are presented to characterize small-scale fading in indoor propagation channels when directional antennas are used. The model is verified by comparing simulated results to measured results. The model is then used to obtain, via simulation, fading statistics for an indoor,(More)
—We propose to combine directional antennas in a conformal array configuration with a matching two-stage receiver architecture to improve performance of code-division multiple-access (CDMA) communication systems in time-varying channels. We propose a reduced-dimension space–time (ST) RAKE architecture that matches the ST correlation structure of the data(More)
