With its confined volume, cylindrical structure and high density of seating, the passenger cabin of a typical midsize airliner is significantly different from the residential, office, outdoor and industrial environments previously considered by IEEE 802.15.4a. The authors have characterized the shape of the Ultra Wide Band (UWB) channel impulse response (CIR) and the fading statistics experienced by individual MultiPath Components (MPCs) within that environment based upon 3300 complex frequency responses that they measured over the range 3.1 - 10.6 GHz at various locations aboard a Boeing 737-200 aircraft.
