It allows for fixed wireless and mobile Non Line of Sight (NLOS) applications primarily by enhancing the OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing Access).
While Hughes made more effective use of the RDEC data, Boeing preferred to take an approach whereby they would, in the estimation of Jerry Dooley (Deputy Project Manager, NLOS project office) and William McCorkle, invent their own version of FOG-M.
[H.sub.w]are zero mean and unit variance complex Gaussian random variables that presents the coefficients of the variable NLOS matrix.
The NLOS localization problem can be categorized into two branches: NLOS identification and NLOS mitigation.
The transmitter is located in two different positions (Tx1, in in the middle of one laboratory, and Tx2 in the corridor) and the receivers have been classified into three groups: [M.sub.1], where the receiver moves across five small consecutive labs (LoS and NLos situations with Tx1), and [M.sub.2], where the receiver moves along the main corridor (LoS with Tx2).
In such scenarios, the non-line-of-sight (NLoS) propagations created by the large vessels are often encountered.
The power angular profile for D1 NLOS scenario for three consecutive simulation runs is shown in Figure 16.
