Abstract
In this paper, results of outdoor-indoor radio coverage enhancement are presented using an electronically
configurable transmitarray (eRT). Enhanced coverage can be achieved due to its capabilities of redirecting the main beam towards the desired target. Results were obtained by placing the eRT in a controlled anechoic chamber environment mimicking a building wall. Results clearly demonstrate that it is possible to lectronically redirect the incoming wave up to 30 ◦ in both azimuth and elevation planes.
