Abstrakt

Low altitude unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-aided applications are promising in the future generation communication systems. In this paper, a recently conducted measurement campaign for characterizing the low-altitude air-to-ground (A2G) channel in a typical Long Term Evolution (LTE) network is introduced. Five horizontal flights at the heights of 15, 30, 50, 75, and 100m are applied, respectively. The realtime LTE downlink signal is recorded by using the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP)-based channel sounder onboard the UAV. Channel impulse responses (CIRs) are extracted from the cell specific signals in the recorded downlink data. To shed lights on the physical propagation mechanisms, propagation graph simulation is exploited. Moreover, path loss at different heights are investigated and compared based on the empirical data. The simulated and empirical results provide valuable understanding of the low altitude A2G channels.
