This thesis describes a real-time software-defined-radio implementation of a two source distributed beamformer. The technique in this thesis can be used to synchronize the carriers of two single antenna wireless transmitters (i.e. “sources”) with independent local clocks so that their bandpass transmissions arrive in-phase at an intended receiver (i.e. “destination”). Synchronization is achieved via: (i) an unmodulated beacon transmitted by the destination to the sources and (ii) a pair of… CONTINUE READING
