Adaptive power and rate control for satellite communications in Ka band


Adaptive power and rate control for efficient use of satellite channels in the Ka band are considered. Fading due to rain is modeled as a log-normally distributed, auto-regressive process with known statistics. Adaptation policies based on MMSE channel estimation are designed taking into account the effect of channel estimation errors in an optimal manner… (More)
