**Abstract**

A simple substantiation of the stability criterion for complex polynomials in Markov parameters is given. The criterion is used to study the stability regions and select the parameters of selective RF and microwave devices by D-decomposition methods. The general case of polynomial positioning of free parameters in the complex characteristic equation of a selective system is considered when the Neymark frequency method is not applicable. The boundaries of the D-partition are determined from the fact that the leading determinant of the Markov or Hermite – Hurwitz matrix is equal to zero. To reveal symbolic determinants, one of the most effective numerical methods was applied – the method of multidimensional DFT conversion. It is shown that a Markov type criterion has potential advantages in the accuracy of calculations, since the order of its matrix is half the order of the Hermite – Hurwitz matrix. The Routh algorithm with the number of basic operations proportional to the square of the order of the Hermite – Hurwitz matrix is unsurpassed in accuracy of calculations.

**Abstract**

An important task of monitoring and early diagnosis of fiber-optic communication lines is to obtain timely and reliable information about the physical condition of optical fibers (optical fibers) located in the laid optical cables. It is believed that OTDR – optical timedomain reflectometers are not able to determine the tension of the organic matter. The Brillouin reflectometry method is used to detect mechanically stressed sections (OM tension) or FOCL sections with a changed temperature. In order to identify common patterns of reflectograms with the assistance of Moskabel-Fujikura CJSC, experimental studies were conducted with a Brillouin optical pulse reflectometer (BOTDR) Ando AQ 8603 and with the usual OTDR EXFO FTB-400 OV sections with altered temperature and tension.

**Abstract**

When implementing and operating a wide class of communication, navigation and radar systems, it is great practical interest to estimate the current signal-to-noise ratio at the system input. The signal-to-noise ratio significantly affects the quality of radio systems functioning and its assessment can be used to monitor the current conditions of their operation and control radio systems, in particular, to adapt changing working conditions.

**PROGRAM
“VECTOR-MIMO” VERSION 2.0 MODELING SYSTEM WITH MIMO TECHNOLOGY**

**S.I. Dinges, A.V. Pestryakov, D.A. Soloviev, **rfdesign@yandex.ru,*Moscow Technical University of Communications and Informatics, Moscow, Russia*

**Abstract**

In the research department at the Department of Radio Equipment and Circuit Engineering MTUCI developed the information and software complex “Vector”, designed for the vector formation and analysis of signals of modern communication systems, testing of individual functional units, radio frequency units and devices in general. The complex allows solving the problems of teaching modern telecommunication technologies in educational institutions. The latest version of the software package adds a number of new functionalities related to the use of MiMo multiple reception and transmission technology. The program “Vector-MiMo” version 2.0 is designed to simulate a MIMO system with Rayleigh fading and non-orthogonal space-time coding – spatial multiplexing and BLAST architecture. In the BLAST system, different information streams are emitted by different transmitting antennas simultaneously and in the same frequency band. The separation of the received information flows on the receiving side is carried out using decoding algorithms. In the current version of the program, the following MIMO information stream decoding algorithms are presented – obtaining an estimate of the information symbol vector X: the method of least squares (Zero Forcing, ZF), the minimum mean square error (Minimum Mean Square Error, MMSE), the maximum likelihood method (Maximum Likelihood, ML) . The result of the program is the dependence of the bit error coefficient BER on the normalized signal-to-noise ratio (Eb / N0).

**Abstract**

The receivers of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) receive and process many signals from navigation satellites GPS (USA), GLONASS (RF), etc. Each of the N signals is processed in a separate channel, and phase synchronization is performed in each channel at the stage of primary processing and estimation of non-energy (phases and frequencies) and energy parameters of the received signal. The totality of these estimates is used at the secondary processing stage to estimate the parameters of the receiver’s movement – its speed and position.
