ABSTRACT: Research on wireless communication system has been pursued for many years, but there is a renewed interest in ultra-wideband (UWB) technology for communication within short range, because of its huge bandwidth and low radiated power level. This emerging technology provides extremely high data rate in short ranges but in more secured approach. In order to build systems that realize all the potential of UWB, it is first required to understand UWB propagation and the channel properties arise from the propagation. In this research, the properties of UWB channel for indoor industrial environment was evaluated. A few indoor channel models have been studied so far for different environments but not for indoor industrial environment and various data rates are obtained according to wireless channel environments. Therefore, an accurate channel model is required to determine the maximum achievable data rate. In this thesis, we have proposed a channel model for indoor industrial environment considering the scattering coefficient along with the other multipath gain coefficient. This thesis addresses scattering effect while modeling UWB channel. Here, the performance of UWB channel model is analyzed following the parameters, such as power delay profile and the temporal dispersion properties which are also investigated in this paper.
