Full-duplex Wireless Integrated Sensing and Communication

Integrated Sensing and Communication (ISAC) has attracted substantial attraction in recent years for spectral efficiency improvement, enabling hardware and spectrum sharing for simultaneous sensing and signaling operations. In-band Full Duplex (FD) is being considered as a key enabling technology for ISAC applications due to its simultaneous transmission and reception capability. In this talk, we present an FD-based ISAC system operating at millimeter Wave (mmWave) frequencies, where a massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Base Station (BS) node employing hybrid Analog and Digital (A/D) beamforming is communicating with a DownLink (DL) multi-antenna user and the same waveform is utilized at the BS receiver for sensing the radar targets in its coverage environment. Our simulation results, considering fifth Generation (5G) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) waveforms, verify our approach’s high precision in estimating DoA, range, and velocity of multiple radar targets while maximizing the DL communication rate.
