Abstract
Multipath is the problem of reflected signals canceling the primary signal in radio communications. This SBIR proposal will review techniques associated with apriori phase variation, cylindrical volume coverage with a circular polarized antenna, and trade off active and passive antenna mounts to stabilize the antenna patterns above the reflecting surface. The elements of this system, incorporated independently or as a system, will allow an improvement in the bit error rate of the signal during conditions of multipath. This will result in a more robust overall system integrity.
