Modern communication systems are typically based on a framework of channels, where the frequency spectrum is divided into channels of a defined bandwidth and each signal is assigned to a particular channel.  This is analogous to a highway system being divided into lanes.  On a highway, it is undesirable for a car to cross into [...]

NASA envisions that data throughput and size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) requirements levied on future space exploration vehicles due to resource constraints will necessitate that a different approach is taken for communications and radar. Rather than employing individual systems for short-range communications, long-range communications, and radar, respectively, a common architecture would need to be [...]

Radio wave applications have come a long way since it was first theorized by James Clark Maxwell in his 1873 work “A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism”, where he laid out mathematical theories showing the potential applications of radio technology. Only fifteen years later, German Physicist Heinrich Hertz became the first person to produce, transmit, [...]
