Path loss is a significant component of wireless communication channel design and analysis and reflects the reduction in a transmitted signal's power density. Due to the differences in the propagation conditions, wireless aerial channels' features differ from those of terrestrial wireless channels; therefore, unmanned aerial vehicle path loss models are often different from conventional terrestrial wireless channel path loss models. A mathematical propagation model is proposed in this paper to estimate the Ground-to-Air path loss between a wireless device and a low-altitude platform using the frequency bands of the millimeter wave. The suggested model of Ground-to-Air path loss will assist academic researchers in formulating several vital problems.
