EHF Satellite Communications-on-the-Move Blockage Channel Modeling

  title={EHF Satellite Communications-on-the-Move Blockage Channel Modeling},
  author={Huan Yao and Ken Hetling and Tom MacDonald and Wayne G. Phoel},
In the next-generation Transformational Satellite Communications System, one essential element is to provide satellite communication to on-the-move terminals, which suffer from intermittent channels due to blockages by objects in their environments. Presented is our approach for modeling these blockage channels for different environments, in order to allow accurate prediction of system behavior via numerical simulation or symbolic analysis. In particular, we focus on the scenario of link-layer… CONTINUE READING
