  • Publication number: 20200107373
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for Random Access Channel (RACH) procedures in unlicensed spectrum. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may monitor for a random access response (RAR) or a reference signal (RS), e.g. in an RAR window. The WTRU may determine whether an RS has been received a threshold amount of times, e.g. if an RAR is not received. The WTRU may continue to monitor for an RAR or an RS, e.g. if the RS has not been received a threshold amount of times and the RAR window is not at a maximum RAR window size.

  • Patent number: 9885776
    Abstract: A radar warning receiver system includes an electronic radar receiver unit configured to generate at least one excitation pulse. The at least one excitation pulse initializes at least one antenna during a respective dwell time to receive at least one radar wave output by an active emitter of an active threat object. An electronic enhanced receiver scheduler unit includes a microcontroller configured to determine at least two threat objects from a plurality of possible threat objects. The microcontroller generates at least one enhanced hybrid pattern including a series of non-continuous dwell times respective to each of the at least two determined threat objects. The radar receiver unit generates the at least one excitation pulse according to the enhanced pattern so as to detect the at least two determined threat objects.

  • Patent number: 9014124
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) is described. The WTRU includes a front-end unit (FEU), a signal processing unit (SPU), and a resource management unit (RMU). The FEU receives a radio frequency (RF) signal, generates time-interleaved samples, an includes: a first array of first time-interleaved samplers, a second array of second time-interleaved samplers, and a third array of third time-interleaved samplers. The SPU receives and combines the plurality of time-interleaved samples and generates a signal quality measurement and in-phase and quadrature-phase (IQ) complex samples. The RMU receives the signal quality measurement and allocates FEU resources in conjunction with a front-end unit controller (FEUC) based on the signal quality measurement. The FEUC generates control signals based on the received signal quality measurement from the RMU.
