Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) in Wireless Communications – Identification and Resolution
RFI is experienced in all radio communication systems, on the ground, in the air and on the sea, and in space. This course will address all principal uses of radio and wireless and how RFI can be assessed and resolved. The approach is based on solid technical methodologies that have been applied over the years yet considers systems in use today and on the near-term horizon. The objective is to allow the widest variety of radiocommunication applications to operate and co-exist, providing for effective methods of identifying and resolving RFI before, during and after it appears.
Attendees will receive a copy of Mr. Elbert's textbook Radio Frequency Interference in Communications Systems, Artech House, 2016.
