A SURFACE - WAVE TRANSMISSION LINE FOR VEHICULAR COMMUNICATIONS

A year's study carried out by the ESSA/ITS Guided Wave Technology Group under contract from the OHSGT/DOT indicates that low cost, excellent coupling characteristics, and ability to serve vehicles on two closely spaced guideways make the Goubau surface-wave transmission line an attractive solution to the high-speed ground transportation communications problem. Further testing in a real environment should be undertaken to prove or disprove the encouraging results obtained experimentally with the 918-ft prototype line used in this study. (Author)
