Paper Abstract

In this letter, we develop and demonstrate a coherent distributed transmission system based on high-accuracy microwave ranging systems to perform distributed transmit beamforming for mobile platforms. The output of the high-accuracy microwave ranging systems is used to adjust the phase of a transmitter to maintain phase coherence when platforms are moved. Results from laboratory and outdoor experiments demonstrating successful performance are provided.
