A universal non-line-of-sight (NLOS) ultraviolet single-scatter propagation model in noncoplanar geometry is proposed to generalize an existing restricted analytical model. This generalized model considers that the transmitter and the receiver cone axes lie in the same plane or different planes, where they can be pointed in arbitrary directions. The model is verified by extensive simulations, showing that the proposed model is consistent with the original NLOS single-scatter propagation model and the Monte Carlo model. The path loss performance is further investigated in terms of different noncoplanar geometric settings and path loss dependence is also analyzed for different factors, including scattering volume size, relative position between the scattering volume and the transceiver, and radiation intensity of the transmitter.
