—In a recent study, solutions have been proposed for completely suppressing the multiple access interference (MAI) arising in the uplink of a quasi-synchronous multicarrier code-division multiple-access network as a consequence of multipath distortions and carrier frequency offsets. This result is achieved by employing exponential orthogonal codes or(More)
—Distance-bounding protocols are able to measure a secure upper bound to the distance between two devices. They are designed to resist to reduction attacks, whose objective is reducing the measured distance. In this paper we focus on the opposite problem, the enlargement attack, which is aimed at enlarging the measured distance. We analyze the feasibility(More)
—The paper is concerned with the impact of clock frequency offsets on the accuracy of ranging systems based on time of arrival (TOA) measurements. It is shown that large TOA errors are incurred if the transmitter and receiver clocks are mistuned by more than just one part per million (ppm). This represents a serious obstacle to the use of commercial(More)
—This paper investigates time of arrival estimation via impulse radio ultra-wideband technology. A dense multipath channel is assumed and frequency-selective propagation effects are taken into account that make the individual received pulses different in shape from the transmitted monocycles. Assuming only an approximate knowledge of the received pulses'(More)
The Aeronautical Mobile Airport Communications System (AeroMACS) has been developed for future high-rate, secure, and safety enhancing airport communications in the C-band. Although initially designed for ground applications, the relatively large radio coverage area of AeroMACS suggests its potential extension to new operative scenarios wherein a data link(More)
