Paper Abstract

The characteristics of non-line-of-sight (NLOS) ultraviolet (UV) overwater communication channels under shore-to-vessel conditions and multiple scattering effects is modeled using Monte Carlo simulations. The field experiment measured received photon distribution, and calculated path loss at distances of up to 164 meters with the support of a GPSsynchronized accelerometer. Key parameters, such as transceiver elevation angles, water surface reflection index, airborne humidity, pollution, and temperature, were considered and analyzed in path loss simulations to more accurately compare with measured data. These channel modeling and experimental results will serve as the foundation for further study of the NLOS UV overwater and maritime communication system.
