ABSTRACT The performance of two-phase collaborative communication protocols is studied for wireless networks. All the communication nodes in the cluster are assumed to share the same channel and transmit or receive collaboratively in a quasi-static Rayleigh flat-fading environment. In addition to small-scale fading, the effect of large-scale path loss is also considered. Based on a decode-and-forward approach, we consider various variable-rate two-phase protocols that can achieve full diversity order and analyze the effect of node geometry on their performance in terms of the outage probability of mutual information. For the single-relay node case, it is shown that if the collaborator node is close to the source node, a protocol based on space-time coding (STC) can achieve good diversity gain. Otherwise, a protocol based on receiver diversity performs better. These protocols are also compared with one based on fixed-rate repetition coding and their performance tradeoffs with node geometry are studied. The second part deals with multiple relays. It is known that with N relays an asymptotic diversity order of N+1 is achievable with STC-based protocols in the two-phase framework. However, in the framework of collaborative STC, those relay nodes which fail to decode remain silent (this event is referred to as a node erasure). We show that this node erasure has the potential to considerably reduce the diversity order and point out the importance of designing the STC to be robust against such node erasure

    ABSTRACT: For a safe flight and accurate air navigation, the key data are calculated using Air Data Computer (ADC). Altitude information is one of the important parameter computed by the ADC. According to aircraft type, accuracy of the altitude corrected using tables or charts showing the actual corrections in altitude information special to the aircraft. This correction is important in any high performance and jet aircraft. In this paper, adaptive neuro fuzzy system (ANFIS) are used to calculate altitude information more easily and accurately using data obtained from tables formed under standard atmosphere conditions. The pressure altitude values obtained using proposed ANFIS model don’t need to correction. 1. GİRİŞ

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose an opportunistic relaying with multiple decode-and-forward (DF) relay nodes based on interference cancelation (IC). The relay that succeeds decoding data in the former phase performs IC to decode another data in the current phase without suffering from interference caused by the selected best relay that forwards the data of the former phase. It is shown that the proposed scheme compensates for the loss of spectral efficiency caused by half duplexing relay nodes when the number of relays is large or SNR is high. In a whole systemic view, the proposed system asymptotically works as a single full-duplex transceiver. Our analytical and numerical results confirm that the proposed scheme outperforms the opportunistic single selection relaying with DF in terms of outage capacity when the number of relays is large or SNR is high.

    ABSTRACT: This paper studied a new approach designed for a distributed wireless network under three adverse communication environment, such as, broadband noise jamming (BNJ), node geometry, and channel uncertainty. It is designed for a cooperative network consisting of one-source, one-destination and N-relay nodes that implement amplify-and-forward (AF) strategy. Deriving optimal relay amplifying matrix is the primary contribution of this paper. Due to cooperation role for relay nodes, new nondiagonal matrix has been observed. This matrix is minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion basis, and employs the difference between the original transmitted information message by the source and the received signal component at the destination. Effects of adverse wireless communication environments on wireless relay networks performance have been evaluated using Monte Carlo simulations. Bit error rate (BER) was used to validate the results.
