—For the first time, we demonstrate the feasibility of realizing ultrawideband antennas through ink-jetting of conductive inks on commercially available paper sheets. The characterization of the conductive ink as well as of the electrical properties of the paper substrate are reported for frequencies up to 10 GHz. This letter is one step further toward the(More)
—The purpose of this paper is to present a robust and fast beamforming algorithm for the low-cost mobile phased array antennas. The proposed beamforming algorithm uses a sequentially perturbation gradient estimation method to update the control voltages of the phase shifters, with the objective of maximizing the received power by the array. This algorithm(More)
—In this paper, a novel hybrid tracking method for mobile active phased-array antenna systems is developed. The proposed technique consists of a mechanical stabilization loop and a direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm, which is based on electronic beamforming. Compared with other tracking methods, the proposed method requires only one low-cost(More)
— For the first time, we demonstrate the feasibility of realizing ultra-wideband antennas through ink-jetting of conductive inks on commercially available paper sheets (paper as an RF substrate). The characterization of the conductive ink as well as of the electrical properties of the paper substrate is reported for frequencies up to 10GHz. This work is one(More)
