The Phased Array System Toolbox™ lets you model monostatic and bistatic free-space signal propagation. Alternatively, you can employ simple multipath propagation using a two-ray propagation model. The LOS models calculate signal propagation through atmospheric gases, rain, and fog and clouds. These models are available for narrowband and wideband signals. You can model multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) narrowband communications channels.
