Abstract

In this chapter, we have studied the propagation of short, impulse-like pulses propagating through the ionosphere. The ionosphere is modeled by simple, cold plasma. The impulse response of such a plasma model is known to consist of two terms. The first term is the impulse itself and the second term contains a Bessel function of first order. This means that the impulse propagates as an impulse followed by a long, oscillatory tail. The numerical example studied here is that of the prototype impulse radiating antenna (IRA). Closed-form expressions are developed for the prototype IRA waveform propagation through the cold-plasma model of the ionosphere. The results are cross-checked with numerical evaluation via a convolution process that uses the known impulse response.
