Fast prediction of scattering in mountainous terrain using commonly visible surfaces

Abstract

This paper discusses a computer program for deterministic prediction of radio wave scattering in hilly and mountainous terrain using a DTED terrain database. A fast and accurate visibility algorithm with a linear computational complexity and little RAM requirement is invented to find the terrain elements that are commonly visible to both ends of the… (More)
