Orbital Diversity in Resource-Shared Satellite Communication Systems Above 10 GHz

  title={Orbital Diversity in Resource-Shared Satellite Communication Systems Above 10 GHz},
  author={Emilio Matricciani},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
The paper discusses orbital diversity (OD) used as the common resource in a satellite communication adaptive system affected by rain attenuation. To give quantitative results, a imulation at 20 /30 GHz is performed with a mathematical model; also, some experimental results are shown. OD performance for a single site is first discussed. Then the probabilistic theory for adaptive systems is built up and applied to the simulated system. System reconfigurability and switchover are discussed… CONTINUE READING
