This paper derives a physical-statistical land mobile-satellite/HAP propagation channel model that can predict joint statistical time series and power-spatial-delay profile data in a multi-antenna mobile, multi-satellite scenario, and is compared with published measurement data. The model is then used to estimate the required satellite and HAP antenna separation to achieve an uncorrelated Satellite-MIMO or HAP-MIMO channel matrix. An estimation of the capacity increase of a dual transmit, dual receive MIMO system over a SISO system is also provided using the model.
