Paper Abstract

In this study, the characteristics of overwater non-line-of-sight (NLOS) ultraviolet (UV) communication channel which include scattering and turbulence effect are modeled using single scattering and Monte Carlo multiple scattering simulation. In addition, simulation results of turbulence effect and path loss at a short separation distance are reported and analyzed where, transmitting angles, along with airborne humidity and temperature were taken into considerations as key parameters which affect the distribution of the receiving signals. Overwater NLOS UV communication channel measurement test bed is proposed with field testing plan. These channel modeling results will be valuable for studying overwater NLOS UV communication performance and the development of unique overwater NLOS UV communication system.
