Method to enable single frequency network optimization

Delphi also had this patent application published for the network optimization of SDARS networks:

United States Patent Application 20060274855
Kind Code A1

Method to enable single frequency network optimization


Additional data may be added to the current SDARS satellite signals as a phase and/or amplitude offset from the legacy quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) modulated data and transmitted by the SDAR terrestrial repeaters. However, in the case where a legacy receiver architecture for a differential modulation system outputs angular/phase differences between carriers, the phase and/or amplitude information appears as distortion to the legacy receiver. The present invention provides a method for optimizing the SDARS infrastructure more efficiently by allowing independent adjustment of the phase and/or amplitude offset (610) at each terrestrial site. The present invention provides a method for adjusting the performance of each signal together or separately as needed.
