Radio Communications for Emergency Responders in High-Multipath Outdoor Environments



Catherine A. Remley, Galen H. Koepke, Christopher L. Holloway, Chriss A. Grosvenor, Dennis G. Camell


We present measurement data to support technology and standards development for broadband, digitally modulated radio communications used by emergency responders. Measurements were carried out at an oil refinery, representing a class of high-multipath, outdoor propagation environments that includes electrical generation facilities, chemical plants, and other outdoor, heavy industrial environments where reliable emergency responder communications is critical. The measurement results presented here quantify the extent of the multipath, loss, and other propagation effects in such high-multipath outdoor environments.
