Influence of HAPS and GEO Satellite under SANDU Layering and Gas Attenuations


Kamal Harb


Vol. 21  No. 12  pp. 93-100


Satellite communication for high altitude platform stations (HAPS) and geostationary orbit (GEO) systems suffers from sand and dust (SANDU) storms in desert and arid regions. The focus of this paper is to propose common relations between HAPS and GEO for the atmospheric impairments affecting the satellite communication networks operating above Ku-band crossing the propagation path. A double phase three-dimensional relationship for HAPS and GEO systems is then presented. The comparison model present the analysis of atmospheric attenuation with specific focus on sand and dust based on particular size, visibility, adding gas effects for different frequency, and propagation angle to provide systems’ operations with a predicted vision of satellite parameters’ values. Thus, the proposed system provides wide range of selecting applicable parameters, under different weather conditions, in order to achieve better SNR for satellite communication.
