The increasing demand of advanced applications to be delivered to end users using SatCom systems requires to shift to higher operating frequencies to guarantee the necessary bandwidth. In this scenario, severe propagation impairments, which are strictly related to the space-time structure of the atmosphere, limit the system performance. This contribution presents an overview on the availability of data and models for the statistical characterization of the atmospheric constituents of interest… CONTINUE READING
