As multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) transmission technologies are common in terrestrial mobile communications and getting attention for mobile broadcasting satellite systems, the need for a comprehensive MIMO channel model for the dual-polarized land mobile satellite (LMS) channel arises. In the course of the Characterisation of the MIMO Channel for Mobile Satellite Systems (MIMOSA) project, two complementary modeling approaches have been developed that form a dual model. They provide a scalable modeling solution, which permits a user selectable level of simulation complexity and detail. The models have been evaluated by comparing their results with data gathered from the extensive field trials carried out within the MIMOSA project. This paper describes the dual wideband-modeling and narrowband-modeling approaches, provides examples of the usage and provides some evaluation results.
