Paper Abstract

It is of interest to find compare optimum beamforming communications between a random antenna array of sensors and a uniform antenna array base station to MIMO communications between the two arrays. For these purposes we examine a specific example. Channel capacity is compared for various versions of MIMO communications. Channel state information is assumed to be known a.) at the receiving array only, and b) at both the transmitting and receiving arrays. When the signal to noise ratio is high, the blind transmitter and the knowledgeable transmitter MIMO provides higher channel capacity than the beamformer, but for very low signal to noise ratio only the knowledgeable transmitter MIMO equals the beamformer channel capacity.
