Abstract : This document addresses potentials for Navy use of line of sight (LOS) communication links in the microwave and millimeter frequency bands (2 GHz to 90GHz) to support data rates greater than 10 Mbps. Issues relevant to communications in this frequency band are addressed, such as weather effects, LOS blockage, and the need for high gain directional antennas. Additionally, Navy-specific issues are discussed, including size and weight limitations, shipboard electromagnetic interference sources, and antenna stabilization aboard moving platforms.
