Abstract:

This thesis presents a microcomputer based, computer-aided design program for tactical military tropospheric scatter radio systems. The program has the capability of predicting the system performance and reliability for both analog FMFDM and digital troposcatter radiolinks for both analog FMFDM and digital tropospheric ducting is called height gain. A height gain computational model for specific elevated tropospheric ducts is derived from statistical radiosonde data. A terrain profile plot, real time radiosonde data analysis, and the probability of error for digital radiolinks are provided as program options. Keywords include Troposcatter Over-the-Horizon Communications Height Gain and Tropospheric Ducting.
