Welcome to the monthly PAWR update. Each month we deliver technical summaries on: POWDER, COSMOS, AERPAW, ARA, and Colosseum.

- The POWDER team continues to expand its footprint of physical resources for users. A third Skylark mMIMO array has now been deployed on site and will soon be made available for research purposes.
- COSMOS hosts extensive mmWave measurement campaigns and is credited in a new paper describing the study of outdoor-to-indoor signal propagation and user coverage in the 28 GHz band. Of particular interest for addressing the digital divide, the paper shows the potential for using mmWave base stations to provide indoor wireless coverage with more than 2 gigabits of throughput.
- The AERPAW team is highlighting ways that raw 4G LTE I/Q measurements from the testbed can be used for air-to-ground channel characterization in a new paper submitted to the IEEE Aerospace Conference. Some representative results show frequency and time selectivity of an LTE link with the UAV and how the coherence bandwidth changes as a function of 3D link distance.
- The majority of the deployment work for ARA’s four base station sites at Wilson Hall, Agronomy Farm, Curtis Farm, and Research Park is now complete.
