Transmitter beamforming solvability using active scattering devices

Abstract (Summary)

This paper describes a new beamforming technique which employs a deterministic multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) channel model. The use of Composited Transfer Functions (CTF) with the channel state information (CSI) in this approach allows for precise multipath path loss calculations that permit for the generation of orthogonal beams at specific receiving antenna elements. Frequency reuse is possible such that only the specified antenna is receiving signals, this reuse allows for multiple users to transmit and receive data on a single frequency. We show that through the additional use of active gain scattering devices, optimizer solvability increases and allows for larger areas and more diverse geometries of transmitting and receiving antenna elements. The capabilities and effectiveness of our beamforming approach with and without active scattering are discussed in this report.
