propagation path

propagation path

[‚präp·ə′gā·shən ‚path]
(communications)
A path between receiver and transmitter including direct tropospheric scatter, ionospheric scatter, E-layer skip, and F1-layer and F2-layer skip and echo.

As the signal travels more slowly over land, the receiver needs additional information about the propagation path to make an accurate estimate of the vessel's position.
He emphasizes the primary role of the antenna-to-antenna propagation path in the overall performance of these systems.
This study thus concluded that the Karasawa prediction model can be best used for predicting overall propagation impairment regarding scintillation on the Malaysian propagation path.
The propagation path traversed through the sound wood when the radius of the hole was less than the vertical distance from the center of the hole to the propagation path.
This permits the user not only to test the DUT, but also the passive component, as it is now made part of the signal propagation path. If there is an open in the path (e.g., a missing resistor), the test will fail.
Wavelength and objects in the propagation path partially dictate performance.
Slant Total Delay is a result of integrating the refraction coefficient N along the GPS wave propagation path from the receiver to the satellite:
Chapter 2 offers different possibilities for adjusting the difficult system matrix of inbound and outbound signals and the propagation path in between.
For example, when [k.sub.2] = 2 it is just the arrival time of the SP*S head wave, where SP*S also represents the propagation path of the head wave ray.
To avoid the problems, the scientists inserted a 1-millimeter-long gold cone with an opening angle of 60 degrees into the shell to keep the propagation path of the short-pulse laser free from the plasma that forms around the imploding shell, according to the Nature.
These objects may block the direct propagation path which leads to the non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments.
