This research topic addresses the development of new satellite communication capabilities in the V and W frequency bands of 71-76 and 81-86 GHz. Current research activities focus on the characterization and modeling of the radiowave propagation at these frequencies, including radiometric based atmospheric attenuation measurements. Research opportunities exist for topics that support this development, including improved knowledge and modeling of the propagation channel, fade mitigation techniques, system concepts and analysis, and component development.
