The article presents information related to ultra-wideband. Digital pulses of 1ns are send directly to an aerial in an ultra-wideband. Around 40ns is the normal pulse repetition rate and at a time 40 pulses can be transmitted. Both the direct signal and any reflected energy need to be collected by the receiver.
