High throughput slotted ALOHA packet radio networks with adaptive arrays

  title={High throughput slotted ALOHA packet radio networks with adaptive arrays},
  author={James Ward and R. Theodore Compton},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Communications},
AbstmctWe consider the use of a multiple beam adaptive array (MBAA) in a packet radio system. In a multiple beam adaptive array, a given set of antenna elements is used to form several antenna patterns simultaneously. When used in a packet radio system, an MBAA can successfully received two or more overlapping packets at the same time. Each beam captures a different packet by automatically pointing its pattern toward one packet while nulling other contending packets. This paper describes how an… CONTINUE READING
