Channel modeling, which is quite important for wireless communications system design, is difficult to be statistically generated from experimental results due to the expense and time constraints. However, with the computational electromagnetics method, the Electro-Magnetic (EM) field can be emulated and the corresponding EM wave propagation scenario can be analyzed. In this letter, the Finite Integration Technique (FIT) method is utilized to calculate the EM wave propagation of the onboard mobile communications in the cabin of an aircraft. With the simulation results, the channel model is established. Compared with Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD), the proposed scheme is more accurate, which is promising to be used in the cabin channel modeling for onboard mobile system design.
