Identification of the Best Location for High Altitude Platform Station

Assadeq AbolhaoshatMansour Albendag, Ahmad Faizal Mohd Zain.

One of the main key issues in the exploitation of
HAPS is the rain as the rain attenuation is most dominant at the
frequencies above 10 GHz. The effect of rainfall is more severe in
tropical regions, which are characterized by heavy rainfall
intensity for long periods of the day. This paper provides a
method that used to identify the best location of the HAPS
stratospheric segment in peninsular Malaysia. The study was
done based on ten ground stations that suffer the highest rainfall
intensities on the ground. The best locations for the northern and
the southern platform were found to be at Sungai Lembing (4.11
N, 102.88 E), and Tanjung Kling (2.23 N, 102.02 E)
respectively. The modified ITU-R model was the used to carry
out this study.
