Non-line-of-sight ultraviolet propagation models have been developed for both coplanar and noncoplanar geometries. Based on an exact integral-form single-scatter model, this Letter proposes an approximate closed-form model for tractable analysis applicable to noncoplanar geometries with a narrow transmitter beam or receiver field of view. Numerical results on path loss are presented for various system geometries. These results are verified with the integral-form model and a previous approximate model, showing our model agrees well with the former and outperforms the latter.
