Ultra Wideband technology (UWB) is an emerging technology that has proven to be quite suitable for short range applications. This paper is part of an ongoing research for using UWB technology for positioning team-sport players on a playground, Simulation is conducted for a number of "players" who are carrying RFIDs transmitting signals with biometric information data about each player to a number of receiving antennas positioned around the field. We investigate the effect of multiple access interference (MAI) on the performance of UWB wireless systems using a novel partially developed fading channel and a novel SIMO diversity combining scheme. The main goal is to determine the number of interferers that the system can handle before producing an unacceptable Quality of Service (QoS). The results showed that, due to UWB low power spectral density characteristics, the system can handle a relatively large number of interferers.
