Abstract

A poster highlighting how to use meteorological radar in communication system design. Due to the recent expansion in mobile communications there has been an increased demand for more bandwidth to be made available to provide for new applications such as mobile Internet and video-on-demand. However, at lower frequencies the electromagnetic spectrum is very congested. This means that to provide the required bandwidth for these new services it is necessary to move to higher frequencies. The Radio Communications Research Unit studies the effects of the atmosphere on radio links in order to produce the long term statistics required to properly design and efficiently run the next generation of radio communications systems. To produce these statistics we monitor a number of radio links, including satellite and terrestrial links. We also study in detail the different atmospheric events such as rain clouds that cause disruption of the signal, using the Chilbolton Advanced Meteorological Radar (CAMRa).
