Abstract :

Recent expansions of satellite communication services in the Middle-East have increased the demand for satellite channel characterization and modeling. Nevertheless, the weather dynamics impairment on the earth��?sky signal quality in that region at frequencies above 10 GHz has led to major impacts on the satellite signal quality. This study presents the channel analysis and characteristics based on rain impairment on satellite communication channel in Iraq, as a case study, using actual measured rainfall. The study enhances the identification of the type and performance of the fade mitigation technique, the management of available communication resources, as well as the reliability and efficiency of the communication services. Moreover, the study returns public benefits to the future studies about satellite performance in the Middle-East in general, particularly in Iraq.
