Conclusion and Areas of further study

Beam-forming is a wonderful technology that only recently with high speed DSPs become practical. It allows for highly directional signals to be sent in any direction with out a moving base. In addition the ability to send out more than one signal in several different directions makes it very practical for use with smart antenna systems and cellular technology.

Additional areas of study include simulating several signals being broadcast at once and testing the models theoretical figures with other models and/or an actual built system.
