Clouds and rainfall along a single slant path can result in signal fading for satellite communication systems. The GBS uses Ka-band measurements to observe slant path propagation characteristics and to demonstrate and predict the impact the atmosphere has on signal strength. Linking two or more satellite ground stations together, system operators can use this technique to mitigate signal fading and observe site diversity at Ka-band wavelengths. By combining these results with data from the main meteorological radar CAMRa, the influence of the variation of raincells over time and space on the orientation and separation of satellite ground stations can be observed.
