Abstract:

The objective of this research project was to develop a WV-band Terrestrial Link Experiment WTLE for the characterization of rain attenuation at the WV frequency bands. This test framework can be used to verify and validate models, which can then be used to predict path attenuation, phase distortion, and depolarization at the WV bands. The first part of this report discusses current models available in the literature. The second part of the report details the work related to setting up the hardware and building the actual test link between two locations. The report ends with conclusions stating the nature of this on-going work and the future research to be completed.
