The superposition of multiple ellipses determined by each transmitter-receiver pair finally presents the location of damage.
As compared to the conventional disk model based on free space loss (FSL) [13] which estimates the path loss between a transmitter and a receiver solely based on the transmitter-receiver distance, terrain model additionally considers the terrain profile in affecting the path loss.
Current quantum communication laboratory systems have a price point greater than $100,000 for one transmitter-receiver system.
Static measurements were taken on the room diagonal with a spatial sampling of 30 cm, starting from a position with 1.5 m transmitter-receiver separation.
It is available in three sensor head sizes, along with the ability to utilize two transmitter-receiver pairs simultaneously to provide unparalleled flexibility.
There are some devices, like Holter monitors, with long-term recording capabilities which use a dedicated transmitter-receiver pair for individual usage.
* A transmitter-receiver pair, which communicates using a point-to-point frequency-hopping 2.4-GHz RF protocol.
"Although the range of the transmitter-receiver is theoretically short, its signals are a greater risk when transmitted from the island to the mainland and Whitehall."
Rubin of Johns Hopkins, the code crackers directed their attack specifically against a type of miniature radio transmitter-receiver, or transponder, made by Texas Instruments of Dallas.
