ic profiles for use as input into tactical decision aids; provide a real-time assessment of the boundary layer and refractive layers overland; and compare high resolution numerical model data with radiosonde upper air profiles in the data sparse environment. Results validate AREPS as a Tactical Decision Aid and tool for network administrators and operators for RF signal propagation; determine a negligible statistical significance of refractivity condition impact even though in situ meteorological data captured nonstandard refractivity gradients; show that the atmosphere is not a significant contributor to anomalous signal propagation at the operating wavelength and transmission distances; and conclude that the radiation heating of the network equipment remains as the likely factor to impact the transmission signal and equipment.

A signal generator generates a reference signal for input to a finite impulse response (FIR) filter. The ...
Performance analysis of the effect of pulsed-noise interference on WLAN signals transmitted over a Nakagami fading channel Tsoumanis, Andreas (Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2004-03);of IEEE 802.11a standard. The signal is subject to pulsednoise jamming, when either the desired signal alone or the desired signal and the jamming signal are subject to Nakagami fading. As expected, the implementation of ...
