System level design considerations for high altitude aeronautical platforms operating in the LMDS band are examined. Propagation effects in the LMDS band are outlined, followed by a brief introduction to different platform scenarios. Ground-based and platform-based fixed wireless access scenarios are considered, and it is shown that using a platform, considerably longer link lengths can be used. The effects on performance of platform displacement from its desired location with both fixed and steerable antennas are also examined. It is shown that steerable antennas are of most use when fixed stations are immediately below the platform, with no benefit for fixed stations on the edge of coverage.
