Distributed transmit beamforming enables cooperative radios to act as one virtual antenna array, extending their communications’ range beyond the capabilities of a single radio. Most existing distributed beamforming approaches rely on the destination radio sending feedback to adjust the transmitters’ signals for coherent combining. However, relying on the destination radio’s feedback limits the communications range to that of a single radio. Existing destination-feedback-free approaches rely on… 

Distributed Transmit Beamforming: Design and Demonstration from the Lab to UAVs

Demonstrating distributed transmit beamforming with software-defined radios

This work demonstrates the recent implementation of distributed beamforming on a standard, open-source, software-defined radio platform, where the low quality oscillators make synchronization particularly challenging.

Distributed Transmit Beamforming Expanding the Capacity and Range of Tactical Communications

Progress is reported on to develop an implementation of distributed transmit beamforming that is based on the receiver providing explicit feedback of channel information to the array nodes using a separate backchannel, allowing for high speed, accurate frequency and phase synchronisation of nodes to build an array as required.

This collaborative beamforming demonstration, perhaps the first of its kind on zero-feedback from the final destination, could potentially spark interest on relevant critical applications with ultra low complexity portable radios such as in emergency radio.

Distributed Transmit Beamforming Using Feedback Control

A simple analytical model, borrowing ideas from statistical mechanics, is used to characterize the progress of the algorithm, and to provide guidance on parameter choices, and the proposed system is shown to be scalable: the random phase perturbations can be chosen such that the convergence time is linear in the number of collaborating nodes.

On the Feasibility of Distributed Beamforming in Wireless Networks

It is shown that a large fraction of the beamforming gains can be realised even with imperfect synchronization corresponding to phase errors with moderately large variance, and a stochastic analysis is presented that demonstrates the robustness ofbeamforming gains with imperfect synchronized synchronization.

Distributed transmit beamforming: challenges and recent progress

Promising recent results in architectures, algorithms, and working prototypes indicate that challenges of distributed beamforming can be surmounted, and directions for future research needed to translate the potential of distributedbeamforming into practice are discussed.

Fully wireless implementation of distributed beamforming on a software-defined radio platform

This work describes the first ever all-wireless implementation of distributed beamforming without any secondary wired channels for clock distribution or channel feedback, a novel digital baseband approach to synchronization of high frequency RF signals that requires no hardware mod-ifications, and an implementation of distributing beamforming on a standard, open platform that allows easy reuse and extension.

A Scalable Architecture for Distributed Transmit Beamforming with Commodity Radios: Design and Proof of Concept

The prototype demonstrates that distributed transmit beamforming can be incorporated into wireless networks without requiring hardware innovations, and provides open-source building blocks for future research and development.

Testbed for non-coherent zero-feedback distributed beamforming

This is the first testbed for demonstrating and evaluating zero-feedback, channel state information (CSI)-free, distributed beamforming and quite interestingly, frequency offsets are exploited in this work.
