Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication links for 5G cellular technology require high beamforming gain to overcome channel impairments and achieve high throughput. While much work has focused on estimating mmWave channels and designing beamforming schemes, the time dynamic nature of mmWave channels quickly renders estimates stale and increases sounding overhead. We model the underlying time dynamic state space of mmWave channels with a linear Gauss-Markov process and design sounding beamformers… Expand
