In this paper, we present investigations of non-line-of-sight (NLOS) communication carried out in Russia and in collaboration with researchers in Israel. The theories of radiative transfer and linear systems provide the theoretical basis for this joint research, and experimental results demonstrate that maximal ranges for NLOS communication through atmospheric channels can reach hundreds of kilometers in the visible range and tens of kilometers in the ultraviolet (UV) range of the spectrum. Finally, we predict the range of bistatic underwater communication systems can reach hundreds of meters.
