  • Publication number: 20200212590
    Abstract: A communication device includes a first lens and a feeder array. The first lens has a defined shape, a base, a first tubular membrane connected to the base, and a second membrane arranged as a cap on the first tubular membrane. The feeder array includes a plurality of antenna elements that are positioned in a specified proximal distance from the base of the first lens to receive a first lens-guided beam of input radio frequency (RF) signals through the second membrane of the first lens. The first lens of the defined shape covers the feeder array as a radome enclosure. A distribution of a gain from the received first lens-guided beam of input RF signals is substantially equalized across the feeder array to increase at least a reception sensitivity of the plurality of antenna elements of the feeder array.

  • Publication number: 20200212588
    Abstract: A communication device includes a first lens, a feeder array, and control circuitry communicatively coupled to the feeder array. The first lens is associated with a defined shape, which further exhibits a defined distribution of dielectric constant. The feeder array includes a plurality of antenna elements that are positioned in proximity to the first lens. The control circuitry equalizes a distribution of a gain from the received first lens-guided beam of input RF signals across the feeder array and different scan directions of the plurality of antenna elements. The equalized distribution of gain is based on the defined distribution of dielectric constant within the first lens and the proximity of the feeder array to the first lens.

  • Publication number: 20200099418
    Abstract: A communication device includes a donor receiver that receives a first beam of input radio frequency (RF) signals from a base station or a network node. The communication device further includes a service transmitter that transmits a second beam of RF signals in a first radiation pattern to a user equipment (UE). The communication device further includes control circuitry that detects an amount and a direction of echo signals at the donor receiver. The control circuitry applies polarization to the second beam of RF signals transmitted to the UE and calibrates the polarization to minimize the echo signals at the donor receiver. A second radiation pattern is generated for the second beam of RF signals and communicated to the UE based on the calibrated polarization. The communication of the second beam of RF signals in the generated second radiation pattern further reduces the echo signals at the donor receiver.
