A hybrid (parabolic equation)-(Gaussian beam) algorithm for wave propagation through large inhomogeneous regions

IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 1998

The wide-angle split-step parabolic equation (PE) algorithm is used to model electromagnetic wave propagation over general inhomogeneous terrain up to a height h. The PE-computed fields at h are then projected onto a complete Gabor basis from which we effect Gaussian beam propagation at altitudes greater than h. The Gaussian beams can be propagated through general inhomogeneous media, devoid of ...

  • Radio wave propagation characteristics measurement and modeling over the sea

    Radio wave propagation test is introduced in this paper. It was held in the sea area near Qingdao city, and involved different band including L band, S band, C band and X band. Using the path loss model given in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recommendation propagation 1411, we derived the characteristic parameters such as path loss exponent and shadow fading for different frequencies. The statistic propagation model can be used for providing a reference for ship information communication.

  • A hybrid (parabolic equation)-(Gaussian beam) algorithm for wave propagation through large inhomogeneous regions

    The wide-angle split-step parabolic equation (PE) algorithm is used to model electromagnetic wave propagation over general inhomogeneous terrain up to a height h. The PE-computed fields at h are then projected onto a complete Gabor basis from which we effect Gaussian beam propagation at altitudes greater than h. The Gaussian beams can be propagated through general inhomogeneous media, devoid of failures at caustics and shadow boundaries (as befalls ray tracing). The accuracy of the Gaussian beam algorithm is demonstrated via two realistic examples: (1) low-frequency (HF) ionospheric propagation with application to over-the-horizon radar and (2) near-grazing high-frequency propagation for communication or surveillance applications. In the context of these examples, we discuss relevant numerical issues associated with the hybrid algorithm from which general advantages and disadvantages are addressed.

  • L-band propagation measurement at tropical environment

    Communication and data transfer demands are growing fast in last few decades. In order to obtain higher data transfer, it is necessary to determine proper antenna placement in a wireless system. In this paper, we research propagation in tropical environment and L-Band frequency by conducting distance and high variation measurement at frequency 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz. The received power level decreases as the distance increases. Some discrepancies come from obstacles around the measurement set up. These results can contribute to find out the maximum channel capacity by considering an optimum antenna configuration based on received power levels.

  • Experimental Study on Effects of Ionospheric Multi-path on Echo Spectra in HF Hybrid Sky-surface Wave System

    In high-frequency (HF) hybrid sky-surface wave system, owing to the ionosphere propagation mode, the echo spectrum of hybrid sky-surface wave propagation channel are extremely complex in spatial, time, and frequency domains, which seriously affect radar performance. Using the newly-developed hybrid sky- surface wave experimental system and the oblique incidence sounders (OIS), the echo spectra for hybrid sky-surface wave propagation channel and the ionospheric propagation paths are obtained separately. The typical examples of echo spectra via the different propagation paths are analyzed. For ionospheric one-path propagation, the Range-Doppler spectra include sea clutter and ionospheric direct wave via one mode, which is conductive for target detection and location. For ionospheric multi-path propagation, the echoes via multi- path interact with each other, and the qualities of spectra reduce, which would seriously affect ship target detection. It is found that the propagation mode of echo spectra vary complicatedly with frequency and ionosphere state. This research could provide important supporting functions for operating frequency selection, target detection, and location.

  • C band transhorizon signal characterisations in evaporation duct propagation environment over Bohai Sea of China

    Evaporation duct is an anomalous mechanism of transhorizon propagation in marine and coastal regions. In order to better understand the characteristics of signal fading, a C band signal transhorizon propagation experiment was carried out with a 107 km path length over the Bohai Sea of China. Using an iron tower with meteorological and oceanographic (METOC) sensors at multiple altitudes, a direct diagnostic method of evaporation duct is presented. The dependence of signal strength on evaporation duct height, antenna height, and METOC parameters is analysed. The experimental results indicate that the signal strength tends to be linearly dependent on the evaporation duct height when the transmitter and receiver antennas are submerged within the duct layer. Normally, the signal strength is stronger when the relative humidity is lower. Stronger signal strength tends to occur under near-neutral or stable atmospheric conditions or when the air–sea temperature difference is higher. The results indicate that the signal strength distribution of fast fading is close to Rayleigh distribution, and the probability density of fade slope is symmetric at 0 dB/s. These results have important implications for the design of ducting communications system.

  • The Study of Experiment on Tropospheric Scatter Propagation at C-band

    At present, the theory of troposcatter propagation mechanism is still imperfect. In this paper, the tropospheric scatter experiment is introduced, which path length is 56.2km, in order to further study the mechanism of turbulence incoherent scatter. The fading and distribution characteristics of the signal are analyzed according to the experiment data. Meanwhile, the path loss of experiment is also compared with the result of ITU-R P.617-4.

  • 18 GHz propagation measurements and analysis in Belo Horizonte/Brazil

    This paper presents a 18 GHz cm-Wave measurement-based campaign and path-loss analysis and a comparison with the traditional Alpha-Beta (AB) and the Close- in (CI) propagation models. A suburban scenario in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, was considered and measurements were done considering LOS and NLOS conditions. The recorded samples data were processed and an outdoor propagation path loss was obtained, and then fitted in a curve to compare with the reference propagation models. It was observed a path loss exponent of 4.737 for the AB model, an exponent of 2.923 and 2.472 for the CI model with reference distances of 1 m and 2.5 m, respectively. A Beam Combining Gain (BCG) analysis was also performed and a mean value of 3.4 dB was obtained when using the 3 strongest components of two measurement points.

  • Propagation path loss models for LTE-advanced urban relaying systems

    Relaying technology - a key technical enhancement in 3GPP LTE-Advanced (3rd Generation Partnership Project Long Term Evolution - Advanced) - has attracted much research interest over the last few years. However, propagation path loss models dedicated to relaying systems are yet to be properly validated. Moreover, the impact of relay antenna height on propagation channel has not yet been adequately studied. This paper presents a measurement-based study which aims to analyze the impact of relay antenna height on path loss channel models. The analysis results demonstrate that BS-RS (Base Station - Relay Station) link path loss decreases with the increase in relay antenna height. Moreover, different propagation models which could be applied for BS-RS link are verified. The analyses show that these models are not completely adequate for relaying deployment. Finally, a new propagation model for relaying deployment which takes into account the impact of relay antenna height is proposed.
