Abstract
A 500m experimental propagation range has been implemented, with transmission systems operating at 37, 57, 97 and 137 GHz in the millimetre-wavelength region of the electromagnetic spectrum and at 10.6 µm and 0.63 µm in the infrared and optical regions, respectively. A comprehensive range of meteorological measurements complements the propagation data, which together are used to carry out a variety of investigations into the interactions between electromagnetic radiation and the atmosphere. Of particular interest are the effects of precipitation, including rain, snow and hail, hydrometeors such as fog, and other atmospheric phenomena including scintillation. The results are further used to compile statistical data to evaluate the reliability of future communications systems operating at millimetre wavelengths.
