Abstract

A poster describing the synthesis of two dimensional rain fields for systems using spatial diversity. Radio communications systems operating at 10 GHz and above suffer significant impairment due to rain, clouds and atmospheric gases. This attenuation is unlikely to be compensated for by fade margin alone. Fade Mitigation Techniques such as site and route diversity rely on the temporal and spatial inhomogeneity of rain to improve the availability of a system. To correctly configure such a system to optimise the availability and minimize the cost requires detailed knowledge of typical rain fields. In some cases it is sometimes more convenient to use simulated data for the testing and development of a system. Cascade models have been proposed as a computationally effective method of performing such simulations, and have also been shown to produce the same statistics as real rain fields.
