Accurate estimation of signal attenuation in highly scattering environments such as a forest medium has long been a challenging problem. The challenges arise from the fact that the incoherent power, which becomes dominant after some distance of wave propagation in the random medium, is difficult to model. In this paper, a statistical wave propagation model (SWAP) is developed for predicting the wave propagation path-loss in foliage. In this analysis, the forest is assumed to be statistically… CONTINUE READING
