Abstract

This chapter deals with parameters estimation of satellite channels based on IEEE 802.11a standard. Dependencies of a signal to noise ratio on free space path loss for different types of modulation (BPSK, QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM), noise temperatures, number of OFDM symbols, Doppler frequency offsets, satellite amplifier gain, and aircraft antenna diameter were received using model “OFDM_FSPL_Sat_FSPL_802.11a.” A method for parameters estimation of satellite OFDM communication channel was proposed. The spectrums and signals constellations of received signals were compared for different types of the amplifier nonlinearity. The developed model allows predicting spectral regrowth of digitally modulated OFDM signals due to the amplifier nonlinearity. Channel parameters were received for the Rayleigh and Rician fading, different types of Doppler spectrum, the gain of multipath channels, the delay time of message flow using models “OFDM_Multipath_Sat_Multipath_802.11a,” “OFDM_AWGN_Sat_Multipath_802.11a,” and “OFDM_FSPL_Sat_Rician_802.11a.”
