Abstract:

This report examines expressions for line-of-sight probability as a function of observer altitude H and observer target range R. The result for a somewhat rough terrain classification is P sub LOS 1 exp -97.59267H to the power 0.689606R and the result for a smooth table-top terrain classification is sub P sub LOS 1 exp -770.748H to the power 0.6092R.
