range attenuation

[′rānj ə‚ten·yə¦wā·shən]
(electromagnetism)
In radar terminology, the decrease in power density (flux density) caused by the divergence of the flux lines with distance, this decrease being in accordance with the inverse-square law.

Channel Simulation -- T400CS Channel Simulator provides state-of-the-art on-air and off-air Quality of Service (QOS) verification and testing for satellite and ground systems, adding smooth, phase-continuous carrier and signal Doppler, range relay, range attenuation, and interference and noise/fading to input signals.
In addition to informative, extensive graphics, STK sets up the T400CS Channel Simulator so it can produce exact range delay, Doppler shift, range attenuation, AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise), and fading for the specified scenario.
In addition, the T400MSP applies static or dynamic propagation path attributes such as Doppler Shift, Range Attenuation, Range Delay, and Fading.
