Topics from this paper

Modeling the Impact of 5G Leakage on Weather Prediction
TLDR
The impact of 5G leakage on the accuracy of data assimilation based weather prediction algorithms is studied by using a first order propagation model to characterize the effect of the leakage signal on the brightness temperature (atmospheric radiance) and the induced noise temperature at the receiving antenna of the passive sensor (radiometer) on the weather observation satellite. Expand
An ultra-fast frequency shift mechanism for high data-rate sub-THz wireless communications in CMOS
TLDR
The proposed coupled oscillator loop system enables instantaneous frequency shift in an ideal situation, which resolves overshoots/undershoots and long frequency settling issues in the conventional varactor-based LC voltage controlled oscillator. Expand
Real-Time Detection and Filtering of Radio Frequency Interference Onboard a Spaceborne Microwave Radiometer: The CubeRRT Mission
TLDR
Although CubeR RT's RFE subsystem ceased operating on September 8th, 2018, causing the RDB input thereafter to consist only of internally generated noise, CubeRRT's key RDB technology continues to operate without issue and has demonstrated its capabilities as a valuable subsystem for future radiometry missions.

Intercomparison of Integrated Water Vapor Measurements at High Latitudes from Co-Located and Near-Located Instruments
TLDR
A comparison of co-located and near-locate independently calibrated instruments allowed us to isolate issues that may be specific to a single system and, to some extent, to isolate the effects of the distance between the GPS receiver and the remaining instruments. Expand

TLDR
Technical and non-technical issues that relate to the 5G debate that is ongoing across the country are explored, including topics that are associated with government’s policy and actions towards 5G, and the perception of the general public about this upcoming technology. Expand
5G will drive the development of health care
TLDR
With the start of the China-US trade war, the Trump administration signed the Fiscal Year 2019 Defense improve the level of equalization, universalization, and Authorization Act, restricting the use of 5G in the United States by companies such as Huawei. Expand
