AbstractData recorded during multipath channel sounding experiments, conducted off the coast of Pt. Mugu Naval Air Station at 8.0 GHz was used to model the multipath interference at SHF band over water. The modeling results show that a three ray model consisting of line-of-sight propagation and two reflected propagation paths is a good fit for the measured channel frequency responses. The properties of the multipath reflections are determined by geometry and sea state. For calm seas, the first reflection is a large amplitude short-delay reflection whereas for rough seas, the first reflection has a smaller amplitude and longer delay. The second reflection has a smaller amplitude and larger delay when the sea is calm.
