Abstract : A study was performed to assess the magnitude of multipath interference effects on the transmission of millimeter waves in an aircraft carrier deck environment. The results indicate that although serious interference potential exists, the magnitude of the interference can be greatly reduced by appropriate antenna beam shaping. The interference nulls could be eliminated by using diversity techniques; the use of spaced transmitting antennas is especially promising. (Author)
