Gaussian beam launching is proposed as an alternative to ray-based techniques for propagation channel modeling, and it is implemented and validated in the context of indoor propagation. A rigorous Gabor frame decomposition of source fields is used to represent a radiated field as a superposition of shifted and rotated Gaussian beams, conveniently expressed as complex rays. Beam tracking through multiple reflections and transmissions is straightforward, and fields can then be evaluated by summation of closed form expressions. The parameters of a given transformed Gaussian beam have to be calculated only once for all observation points, leading to easy implementation, and computationally efficient algorithms. Simulations of amplitude–delay profiles, mean excess delay, and RMS delay spread are performed in an indoor environment at 60 GHz and compared to measured and published results.
