Abstract

The paradigm shift towards high data rate demands of mobile users in IMT-2020 commonly known as 5G, led to the possibility of using Aerial Base Stations (ABS) to fulfill such requirements. However, for implementation of ABS, an appropriate air-to-ground channel model is needed. It is an important factor to incorporate the understanding of the channel fading behavior before designing the system. In this article, we present novel channel propagation results obtained from ray tracing simulations for different environments, such as Suburban, Urban and Urban-High-Rise, according to ITU Radio-communication parameters. The details of different channel characteristics such as Spatial Correlation and Cumulative Distribution Function for Small Scale Parameters as Delay Spread and Angle-of-Arrival are presented for different ABS heights. We also focus on various channel modeling approaches and frameworks for 3D channel models.
