Non-line-of-sight UV communication link path loss models have been explored for both coplanar and noncoplanar geometries, and these typically require numerical evaluation. In this Letter, we propose a closed-form and easily applied model to describe link behavior, applicable to noncoplanar geometry. The model is compared with a recently reported analytical model and shows good agreement.
