In this paper, we derive the link budget relations for
communications assisted by reconfigurable smart surfaces (RSS).
Specifically, under specular and scattering paradigms, we provide
link budget expressions for an RSS-assisted communication on
the ground, where the RSS is either mounted on a building, or on
an aerial platform, such as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV),
a high altitude platform station (HAPS), or a low-earth orbit
satellite (LEO). The obtained numerical results provide design
guidelines for RSS-assisted communication systems, including the
recommended aerial platform to use, the size of RSS for each
type of the platforms, and the operating frequencies.
