Research Institution
This Phase I SBIR project will develop models for the wave propagation in a geological stratigraphy including vegetation, snow and ice. The overall goal is to develop macromodels for near ground signal propagation which will be plugged into EMTerrano, EMAG’s 3D ray tracing simulation software. In particular, the propagation models developed at the University of Michigan will be examined thoroughly for incorporation into our comprehensive simulation environment. The proposed framework will allow for hybrid full-wave and ray tracing simulation of near ground communication links. This will include the calculation of the radiation pattern of near ground transmitters taking into account the geological stratigraphy.
