dc.description.abstract Wireless communication has enjoyed explosive growth over the past decade. As demands for increased capacity and quality grow, improved methods for harnessing the multipath wireless channel must be developed. The use of adaptive antenna arrays is one area that shows promise for improving capacity of wireless systems and providing improved safety through position location capabilities. These arrays can be used for interference rejection through spatial filtering, position location through direction finding measurements, and developing improved channel models through angle of arrival channel sounding measurements. This thesis provides an overview of the technical challenges involved in position location of wireless users and details the hardware development of a multi-sensor testbed at the Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group at Virginia Tech. This testbed is to be used for position location experiments as well as a host of other adaptive signal processing applications. en_US
