The work described in this report represents continuation of the work reported in Report no. 1, Study and Investigation of Polarization Programming, Vol. II - Polarization Systems Analysis. Three different aspects of the work are presented in detail. First a study of propagation properties of the troposphere for tropospheric scatter communication is concluded. The main result of this study is the fact that all available evidence indicates that transmitted polarization properties will be essentially preserved through the medium up to the point of reception. However, while it is found that it would be profitable to design a communication system accordingly, a study should be made experimentally to further verify the existence of this transmission characteristic. A second study reported herein has to do with construction of a statistical model of the propagation medium consistent with our knowledge of scatter propagation characteristics that can be used as the basis of system design. Such a channel model incorporating random fading statistics has been set up. Author
