Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper presents two new empirical methods for Ka-band tropospheric scintillation prediction using Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements. The predictions have been compared with 19 months of ITALSAT beacon measurements at 20 GHz. The proposed models achieve significant improvement compared with the classical ITU-R model. The potential of GPS measurements to further improve scintillation prediction methods are also discussed
