Device-to-Device (D2D) wireless communications has many envisioned applications such as proximity-based networking, tactical communications and situation awareness of military personnel in a battlefield. The joint use of multiple frequency bands could provide further enhancement to existing D2D wireless system and localization architectures. However, the development of any suitable communication system with this capability will requires accurate propagation channel measurement and modeling to understand channel frequency dependencies in an environment in which the system will operate. In this paper, we present a detailed description of a propagation channel measurement campaign performed in an outdoor environment within the millimeter wave (mm-wave) 59 - 63 GHz and centimeter wave (cm-wave) 2 - 6 GHz frequency bands. The measurements were conducted for both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios. We extracted (and compared) propagation channel parameters such as distance-dependent pathloss exponent (γ), shadowing gain (ξσ), root-mean-square (rms) delay spread (T rms ) and amplitude fading statistics to motivate a suitable channel model in both bands. The model developed can be used for realistic performance evaluations of devices operating in the cm-wave and/or mm-wave bands.
