Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Fractals have been proven as potential candidates for satellite flying formations, where its different elements represent a thinned array. The distributed and low power nature of the nodes in this network motivates distributed processing when using such an array as a beamformer. This paper proposes such initial idea, and demonstrates that benefits such as strictly limited local processing capability independent of the array’s dimension and local calibration can be bought at the expense of a slightly increased overall cost.
