Abstract

A poster detailing the plans to make site diversity measurements using stentor. STENTOR, the French experimental satellite, has been built as a test bed for future technologies. Its scheduled launch date is October 2001. The propagation payload on the satellite provides the UK with an opportunity to increase the knowledge base of slant path propagation loss at Ka and V-Band. Having already collected data from OLYMPUS and ITALSAT measurements we now have the possibility to record slant path data for a period of more than 10 years from one site. In addition, by having close involvement with the experimental measurement campaign we are developing close links with French groups who intend to make the first measurements of V-Band slant path loss from a tropical site (Guyana). This experiment should serve to answer important questions about the cost effectiveness of site diversity as a fade mitigation technique, and also serve as an important step in the process of understanding the spatio-temporal structure of rain and rain cells.
