Phase Screen Models for Numerical Computation

To the extent that propagation disturbances can be approximated by an equivalent phase-screen, there are analytic models that allow computation of the power-spectrum of the intensity of the field as it propagates away from the phase screen.  The analysis involves … Continue reading

Oblique Propagation

Chapter 4 of my book develops a computational framework for beacon satellite propagation.  With a reference coordinate system centered at ionospheric heights, even small propagation angles lead to very large displacements in the observation plane.  To avoid this problem, a … Continue reading
