This thesis investigates the fundamentals of Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) radio communication systems with space-time codes. A MIMO system was design using the Alamouti space-time code. The modulation technique was binary phase-shift keying (BPSK). Matlab with Simulink was used to simulate the design, which was tested in both an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel and in a multipath fading channel with AWGN. Theoretical performance was derived for both channels and compared to simulated results. The original receiver design was changed to incorporate a maximal-ratio combiner (MRC) receiving technique with channel state information (CSI). The theoretical performance for this design was determined and compared to simulated and published results.

A computationally efficient algorithm for disturbance cancellation to meet the requirements for optical payloads in satellites Taranti, Christian Giorgio Roberto. (2001-09);Vibration control is a very important issue in satellites. The new high- resolution digital imaging devices are especially sensitive to vibrations. Antennas used in laser communications also require a very quiet environment ...
Implementation of a multiple robot frontier-based exploration system as a testbed for battlefield reconnaissance support Hillmeyer, Patrick A. (Monterey, California.
