Satellite Application Notes and White Papers

  1. Troubleshooting Utilizing SNMP - Solving Intermittent Faults - Application Card
    10/24/2011
    Do you operate terrestrial, cable or satellite networks? If so, you might be familiar with this problem: Some stations just can't seem to keep operating smoothly.
  2. Photonic Links Allow MILSATCOM And RF Distribution Networks To Leverage Optical Communication Infrastructure
    10/21/2011
    The ever increasing proliferation and reliance on RF systems has necessitated the need for robust, secure, and distributed network topologies. As a result, the defense industry is incorporating optical fiber cabling in lieu of coaxial cables or waveguides within major communications and weapons systems. This trend has put increased demands on the RF performance of optical links to achieve ever improved Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) capabilities.
  3. Backhaul Infrastructure For Critical Satellite Based Continuity Of Communications Solutions
    10/21/2011
    The ever present threats from terrorism and natural disasters have brought to the forefront a renewed focus on emergency backup communications strategies and solutions for federal, state, and commercial enterprises. Otherwise known as Continuity Of Communications, organizations worldwide are instituting initiatives to seek and develop the means by which to achieve rapidly deployable and robust systems in support of Infrastructure Security, Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness.
  4. Electromagnetic Analysis Of An Antenna Mounted On A Satellite Platform
    9/30/2009
    This article deals with the analysis of a complex antenna mounted on a satellite platform. The geometry of an Iridium satellite is considered, of which a constellation of 66 are at present employed in providing a global mobile communication service. The article gives readers an understanding of the present capabilities of CEM tools in relation to computational resources when dealing with real-world aerospace applications. By Matthys M. Botha and Ernst H. Burger, EM Software & Systems
  5. White Paper: Compatibility Of Services Using WiMAX Technology With Satellite Services In The 2.3 To 2.7 GHz And 3.3 To 3.8 GHz Bands
    6/3/2009
    WiMAX system profiles currently consider use of the frequency bands 2.3 to 2.7 GHz and 3.3 to 3.8 GHz which also have ITU frequency allocations for satellite services. The purpose of this article from the WiMAX Forum is to provide background on the satellite-related issues that relate to co-existence with wireless access services in these two bands and address the interference scenarios that can occur.
