Abstract: Fixed wireless access (FWA) services are receiving new interest with the commercialization of millimeter wave products. These products offer gigabit throughputs by leveraging the 5G waveform and implementing MIMO and beamforming technologies to improve capacity and range. Fiber and DOCSIS based access offer similar rates which puts wireless FWA in direct competition with wireline alternatives. To understand the trade-offs offered by different technologies, we explore the characteristics of millimeter wave fixed wireless access deployments at 28 GHz by modeling the propagation path loss and throughput performance. We highlight critical factors that impact the technical performance of mmWave fixed wireless access technology. We compare them with their wireline counter parts. In that context we present financial models comparing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of fixed wireless access to fiber along with the wireless backhaul using the existing wireline infrastructure. We also present the results of sensitivity analysis of the TCO to highlight the critical factors at play that help favor one technology over another.

Title:
Analog Photonic Systems: features & techniques to optimize performance
Date:
December 8th
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
South Pasadena, CA
Abstract:

Both the scientific and the defense communities wish to receive and process information occupying ever-wider portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This can often create an analog-to-digital conversion “bottleneck”. Analog photonic channelization, linearization, and frequency conversion systems can be designed to alleviate this bottleneck. Moreover, the low loss and dispersion of optical fiber and integrated optical waveguides enable most of the components in a broadband sensing or communication system, including all of the analog-to-digital and digital processing hardware, to be situated many feet or even miles from the antennas or other sensors with almost no performance penalty. The anticipated presentation will highlight the advantages and other features of analog photonic systems (including some specific systems that the author has constructed and tested for the US Department of Defense), and will review and explain multiple techniques for optimizing their performance.

Title:
The Emerging Implications of Wireless Coexistence on Modern Medical Environments
Date:
December 8th
9:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Following the presentations by the ANSI C63 members shown below, James Young of ETS-Lindgren will discuss Verifying Coexistence Performance – A Review of Test Methods and Environments specified in ANSI C63.27. Four measurement methods for coexistence testing are specified in ANSI C63.27: 1) conducted, 2) multiple chamber, 3) radiated anechoic chamber, and 4) radiated open environment. Conducted and open environment test methods will yield valuable information, but advanced wireless technologies like 802.11 n, Bluetooth Low Energy and 5G will likely require shielded anechoic test methods for repeatability and accuracy. Anechoic test methods are necessary when measuring MIMO antenna impact and spectrum sharing technologies which may be present in commercially available wireless modules. A review of each of the four coexistence test methods and measurement results that can be expected from each will be explored in this presentation.

After the three presentations, Dan Hoolihan, Chair of the ANSI C63 Committee, will moderate a Q&A session with all speakers.

Abstract:

 

Abstract:  Data communications between Earth and spacecraft, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offers a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of spacecrafts however gives rise to mobility management issues.

 

This talk will discuss various mobility management solutions for extending the Internet connection to spacecrafts.  The talk with provide an overview of the network layer-based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare it with the transport layer-based solution that has been developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Network in motion is an extension of the host mobility protocols for managing the mobility of networks which are in motion, such as those in airplanes and trains. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.

Title:
Emerging Technologies: The Impact of Modern Robotics, Data Analysis, and CEM Simulation on Antenna and EMC Measurements in 2021 and Beyond!
Date:
December 15th
8:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Join us at this free to attend LIVE webinar with industry experts in the field of Antenna and EMC measurements. All IEEE members and guests are welcome to attend, but you must register in advance per the webinar link below.  

In addition to our speakers shown below, we are honored to have Zhong Chen, Director of RF Engineering with ETS-Lindgren and past Distinguished Lecturer with the IEEE EMC Society, present: Extending the Usable Low Frequency Range of an Anechoic Chamber for Antenna Calibrations Using a Time Domain Deconvolution Filter.  Abstract: It is usually impractical to calibrate antennas in an anechoic chamber down to the VHF frequency range, because absorbers do not perform adequately at these frequencies.  Time domain gating can be used to the extent that the antenna ring-down time is short enough, and the reflections are far enough away, so that a gate can be applied without cutting into the antenna intrinsic response.  Although it could be possible to apply time domain gating at a closer distance in many chambers, it is typically not feasible to do so in the far field where the path lengths of the reflected signals are too close to that of the direct signal.  In this study, we investigate calibrating broadband biconical antennas from 75 MHz to 2 GHz in a chamber designed for above 1 GHz measurements (in which the absorbers have severely degraded performance in the VHF frequency range, and chamber walls are too close to be gated out directly) using time domain deconvolution filter before a gate is applied.  After applying the deconvolution filter acquired from a 3 m measurement in the same chamber, we successfully obtained the free space response at a far field distance (e.g., 8 or 9 m) for biconical antennas operating from 75 MHz to 2 GHz.

We are also excited to have the Chair of the IEEE EMC Seattle Chapter, Dennis Lewis with The Boeing Company, as our webinar host and moderator.  Dennis received his BSEE degree with honors from Henry Cogswell College and his MS degree in Physics from the University of Washington.  He has worked at Boeing for 32 years and is recognized as a Technical Fellow, leading the enterprise antenna measurement capability for Boeing Test and Evaluation.  He currently has leadership and technical responsibility for the primary RF, Microwave, and Antenna Metrology labs. Dennis holds 10 patents and is the recipient of the 2013 and 2015 Boeing Special Invention Award.   He is a member of the IEEE and several of its technical societies including the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S), the Antennas and Propagation Society and the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society. He serves as a Board Member and is a past Distinguished Lecturer for the EMC Society.  He is a Senior Member, served as Vice President on the Board of Directors for the Antenna Measurements Techniques Association (AMTA), and chaired its annual symposium in 2012.  Dennis is a part time faculty member teaching a course on Measurement Science at North Seattle College and is chair of the Technical Advisory Committee. His current technical interests include aerospace applications of reverberation chamber test techniques as well as microwave measurement systems and uncertainties.

           

Title:
DETECT: Wearable Sensor Data to Predict COVID-19 and Viral Illnesses
Date:
December 15th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Bellevue, WA
Abstract:

ABSTRACT:
The availability of large longitudinal data opens new opportunities exploiting statistical learning and deep convolutional neural networks in healthcare. We will overview our large study with data collected from wireless devices from 200,000 individuals for 2 years. We will observe how sleep changes significantly among this large population and is related to age and body mass index. We will also show how a person’s resting heart rate may be a uniquely individualized measure of their health, with potential value for early detection of important physiologic changes.
This large study provides the baseline for DETECT, our app-based, nationwide clinical study enrolling individuals who routinely use a smartwatch or other wireless devices to determine if individualized tracking of changes in heart rate, activity and sleep can provide early diagnosis and self-monitoring for COVID-19. In this talk, we discuss how this program has been implemented and which insights for the individual and for public health are obtained by analyzing data from more than 36,000 individuals. We show our recent results on the validation of this algorithm, proving that it can identify COVID-19 positive cases by analyzing both self-reported symptoms and wearable sensor data.
