BYU Telemetry Laboratory: Wideband Channel Modeling

ARTM Wideband Multipath Channel Modeling

Channel sounding flights were conducted at Edwards Air Force base from 1998 to 1999 to quantify the multipath interference in aeronautial telemetry applications. The effort was sponsored by the Advanced Range Telemetry (ARTM) Program. The sounding signal was transmitted from an airborne transmitter and received by a ground station equipped with a parabolic reflector antenna with tracking capability.
