Workshop on Ultrawideband Radio held May 25-28 at Solvang, California.
This workshop was sponsored by the Communication Sciences Institute and the Integrated Media Systems Center of the University of Southern California, and the U.S. Army Research Office. The goal of this workshop was to determine those aspects of impulse radio and other ultrawideband radio techniques that have been realized, to uncover potential applications, and to define areas of future research. Seventy representatives from 45 companies, universities, and government agencies participated in the workshop.
The meeting was formed around five panel discussions of UWB technology. These were aimed at:
- system issues (chair: Ray Pickholtz, George Washington University),
- implementation problems (chair: David Rowe, Sierra Monolithics),
- currently available UWB radio systems (chair: Paul Withington, Time Domain Corporation),
- potential applications, competing systems, and regulatory constraints (chair: Ed Bedrosian, Rand Corporation), and
- a summary panel discussing results of the workshop, future directions, and potential funding sources (chair: Robert Scholtz, University of Southern California).
A small poster session was also presented. The discussions at the workshop have been transcribed and published after editing and approval by the speakers. Viewgraphs are included from all but one of the speakers.
This volume constitutes the Proceedings of the Workshop, as well as the Final Technical Report to the Army Research Office. Additional copies are available at a nominal fee from
