Low-cost monostatic radio-acoustic sounding system for indoor temperature profiling

  title={Low-cost monostatic radio-acoustic sounding system for indoor temperature profiling},
  author={Graham M. Brooker and J. Martinez},

This paper presents a novel solution to the problems of clutter in the application of indoor radio-acoustic-sounding systems (RASS). A low-cost monostatic configuration comprising a horn-lens surrounded by an annular array of 40kHz acoustic transducers is constructed. A combination of the high acoustic frequency, and hence, high attenuation, and the narrow beam reduce the possibility of interference and allow for an extremely small spatial sample of temperature. Measured results confirm the… CONTINUE READING
