This thesis targets higher frequency satellite systems (Ku-band and above) that suffer from severe atmospheric impairments and require advanced techniques to compensate for the effects of rain attenuation. Keeping a classical approach, based on a worst case sizing, results in fixed over-sizing of systems leading to reduced efficiency and unreasonable costs. It is therefore necessary that these systems include adaptive Fade Mitigation Techniques (FMTs) to counteract propagation impairments in real-time and use system resources efficiently.
