Abstract:

A link analysis of an airground communication link operating at microwave frequencies via an orbiting belt of dipoles, a spherical reflector, and the moon is presented. The analysis shows that for communication ranges in excess of 4000 miles, reliable digital communications at information rates varying from 50 to 1500 bits per second are feasible. Included in the analysis is a cursory examination of the time-frequency perturbations prevalent in an orbital dipole channel propagation characteristics substantiating to a certain degree theoretical studies relative to the use of coherent pulse intergration techniques are also presented.
