### Abstract

Abstract | The application of adaptive antenna arrays offers several advantages for the design of new mobile communications systems. For the investigation of array processing algorithms a realistic simulation of the radio channel is required. The basic principle of a realtime channel sounder with an array frontend is presented. The inclusion of measurement data into the simulation of a communications system is discussed and examples are provided. I.
