Kyocera had four patents in space economy during Q4 2023. Kyocera Corp’s patent involves a system where neighboring cells can detect and communicate uplink interference from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The UAV can adjust its uplink transmission behavior based on feedback from neighboring cells, allowing for better handover and scheduling decisions. Additionally, the UAV can use downlink measurements to select which neighboring base station messages to monitor for interference indicators.

Application: Method of informing serving cell of uplink interference at neighbor cell caused by unmanned aerial vehicle (Patent ID: US20230362771A1)

The patent filed by Kyocera Corp. describes a method for managing uplink interference caused by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in wireless communication networks. When a neighboring cell detects excessive uplink interference from a UAV, it informs the serving cell by transmitting an uplink interference indicator. The serving cell can then use this information to make handover decisions or adjust scheduling for the interfering UAV. Additionally, the UAV may temporarily refrain from transmitting on certain uplink resources or switch to different resources to mitigate interference. The UAV can also use downlink measurements to select which neighboring base station messages to monitor for interference indicators.

The patent also includes claims for methods and apparatuses related to managing uplink interference from UAVs. These claims involve informing the serving cell of interference, transmitting downlink measurement reports to the serving cell, allocating different uplink resources to the UAV, and controlling the UAV's communication in response to detected interference. Overall, the patent aims to improve the efficiency and reliability of wireless communication networks by addressing interference issues caused by UAVs in neighboring cells.
