Title:
A New Digital Beamforming Scheme for High-Altitude-Platform Based Communication Systems 
Abstract:
In this paper we present a digital beamforming scheme for wireless communication systems based on high altitude platforms. The proposed digital beamforming scheme, which is installed on the platforms in high-altitude-platform (HAP) systems, can reduce significantly the number of antenna elements and the corresponding receiver modules, analog to digital (A/D) converters etc. without loss of performance. As a result, the system complexity and the system costs can be reduced, therefore enhancing fe...    »
