Abstract
RAIN IS THE PRINCIPAL CAUSE OF SIGNAL DEGRADATIONS IN THE TERRESTRIAL AND SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS OPERATING AT CENTIMETER AND MILLIMETER WAVELENGTHS. A WIDE RANGE OF UNCERTAINTY ON THE SUBJECT EXISTS AND THE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM DESIGNERS ARE CONFRONTED WITH CONFLICTING DATA. THE PROPOSED STUDY HAS THREE OBJECTIVE: (I) THE COLLECTION, COMPILATION, EVALUATION AND CORRELATION OF EXISTING OBTAINABLE DATS; (II) AN INDEPTH REVIEW OF EACH OF THE LEADING MODELS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO SYSTEM ENGINEERS FOR MICROWAVE COMMUNICATIONS APPLICATIONS; (III) A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF THE VALIDITIES AND LIMITATIONS OF EACH MODEL IN REFERENCE TO THE OVERALL DATA BASE, AND CONSEQUENTLY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A DESIGN HANDBOOK TO AID COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM DESIGNS.
