RPAS Satellite Communication Channel Based on IEEE 802.11b Standard

Abstract

Original models of RPAS communication channels based on IEEE 802.11b Standard, including both Base Station transmission within the Radio Line of Sight, and through the satellite using Beyond Radio Line of Sight, were built. Dependencies of the Bit Error Rate on the Signal-Noise Ratio for different payload data rates were obtained. Transponder nonlinearity and Base Station antenna diameter impact were analysed.
