Phase-only beamforming presents certain advantages in radar and communication systems. In cognitive radio, antenna and user selection are the two tools for increasing the quality of service (QoS) for the users. In this paper, discrete single group multicast transmit phase-only beamformer design is presented with antenna subset and user selection. The problem is converted into linear form and solved efficiently by using mixed integer linear programming to find the optimum subset of antennas and secondary users together with optimum beamformer phase coefficients. It is shown that significant power saving is possible compared to fixed antenna systems.

OPTIMUM DISCRETE PHASE-ONLY TRANSMIT BEAMFORMING WITH ANTENNA SELECTION
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2014-09-05)
Phase-only beamforming is used in radar and communication systems due to its certain advantages. Antenna selection becomes an important problem as the number of antennas becomes larger than the number of transmit-receive chains. In this paper, discrete single group multicast transmit phase-only beamformer design with antenna subset selection is considered. The problem is converted into linear form and solved efficiently by using mixed integer linear programming to find the optimum subset of antennas and bea...
Optimum discrete phase-only multicast beamforming with joint antenna and user selection in cognitive radio networks
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2015-11-01)
Spectrum underlay technique for secondary multicast network is an effective approach in cognitive radio. In such communication schemes, quality of service constraints are satisfied for the secondary users while interference to the primary users is kept under a threshold. Previous literature consists of suboptimum methods for the solution of the individual problems such as antenna and user selection. In this paper, the joint antenna and user selection problem is considered and solved in an optimum manner. Co...
Optimum Discrete Max-Min Style Broadcast Beamforming Design
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2014-04-25)
In this paper, max-mm style transmit beamformer design for single group multicast (broadcast) scenario is considered. The phase and amplitude values of beamformer vector coefficients are selected from finite discrete sets. With the help of integer variables, original optimization problem is converted to a linear form appropriate for mixed integer linear programming. The solution is always feasible as long as the total power is above a certain value. Branch and cut strategy guarantees the optimum solution. P...
Adaptive control of guided missiles
Tiryaki Kutluay, Kadriye; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents applications and an analysis of various adaptive control augmentation schemes to various baseline flight control systems of an air to ground guided missile. The missile model used in this research has aerodynamic control surfaces on its tail section. The missile is desired to make skid to turn maneuvers by following acceleration commands in the pitch and yaw axis, and by keeping zero roll attitude. First, a linear quadratic regulator baseline autopilot is designed for the control of the...
Vision-Based Detection and Distance Estimation of Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Gökçe, Fatih; Üçoluk, Göktürk; Şahin, Erol; Kalkan, Sinan (MDPI, ST ALBAN-ANLAGE 66, CH-4052 BASEL, SWITZERLAND, 2015-9)
Detection and distance estimation of micro unmanned aerial vehicles (mUAVs) is crucial for (i) the detection of intruder mUAVs in protected environments; (ii) sense and avoid purposes on mUAVs or on other aerial vehicles and (iii) multi-mUAV control scenarios, such as environmental monitoring, surveillance and exploration. In this article, we evaluate vision algorithms as alternatives for detection and distance estimation of mUAVs, since other sensing modalities entail certain limitations on the environment...
