Propagation Analysis Program (PAP)

Analyze propagation impairments in an earth-satellite link at C, X, Ku, or Ka-band

Utilize built-in up-to-date models for calculating propagation impairments

Compute induvidual propagation impairments, their combined effect, and the cross-polarization discrimination


Generate reports and plots of impairment data and calculations

About Propagation Analysis Program™

The Propagation Analysis Program is the most comprehensive tool available for computing propagation impairments in an earth-satellite link. It includes several propagation models: PAP, DAH, Crane Two-Component, and ITU-R P.618 models. It models rain fade, depolarization, G/T degradation, tropospheric scintillation, cloud attenuation, gaseous absorption, melting-layer attenuation, and Faraday rotation. Results are generated in the form of Excel reports and plots.
