MLS MULTIPATH STUDIES. VOLUME II. APPLICATION OF MULTIPATH MODEL TO KEY MLS PERFORMANCE ISSUES
This report summarizes MLS multipath work carried out at Lincoln Laboratory from March 1974 to Sept. 30, 1975. The focus of the program is the development of realistic models for (1) the multipath in representative real world environments and (2) the multipath characteristics of candidate MLS techniques. These multipath and system models are used in a comprehensive computer simulation to predict the strengths and weaknesses of major MLS systems when subjected to representative real world environments. The report is organized into two volumes. Volume I describes the algorithms and validation of various portions of the program. In Volume II, the simulation (or selected portions thereof) is applied to key multipath related MLS issues.
