NewSpace networks and terminal vendors need to thoroughly test wireless communication systems and components to ensure uninterrupted operation and high quality of service. This white paper focuses primarily on the challenges ground terminals (user terminals and gateway terminals) present to design verification testing and manufacturing. Conducted and radiated test solutions are also discussed.
A 0° splitter is a passive device that accepts an input signal and delivers multiple output signals with specific phase and amplitude characteristics. This application note delves into the basic operational theories and other fundamental ideas for understanding power splitters.
The implementation margin of a satellite communication system is defined as the degradation of the signal after travelling through the up and downlink equipment. To find this, an Eb/No generator can carry out an IF loopback test of the modem to find bit error rate (BER) values at different Eb/No ratios.

Spotlight On SATELLITE 2020
Where we used to see tens of satellites launched annually, we’re now seeing hundreds, in addition to the replacement and reinforcement of existing infrastructure. The next generation of space and satellites is here…this is a revolution, not an evolution! There’s no time to sit back and wait for change to come to you; be a part of the action and get ahead of the curve by attending SATELLITE.
Mike Bitting of HUBER+SUHNER demonstrates their end-to-end RF over Fiber connectivity solution. This solution stands out in its combination of optics with RF components, making a customized solution for a variety of applications including satellite ground station applications, RF test lab applications, or any application where long, obtrusive cables would be better suited to optical transitions.
Pentek offers the Talon RTX 2684 as a 26 GHz sentinel intelligent signal scanner recording system. The system provides SIGINT engineers the ability to scan the RF spectrum from 1 GHz to 26 GHz for signals of interest and monitor or record bandwidths up to 500 MHz wide.
