Satellite Communications Toolbox

Simulate, analyze, and test satellite communications systems and links

Satellite Communications Toolbox provides standards-based tools for designing, simulating, and verifying satellite communications systems and links. The toolbox enables you to model and visualize satellite orbits and perform link analysis and access calculations. You can also design physical layer algorithms together with RF components and ground station receivers, generate test waveforms, and perform golden reference design verification.

With the toolbox you can configure, simulate, measure, and analyze end-to-end satellite communications links. You can also create and reuse tests to verify that your designs, prototypes, and implementations comply with satellite communications and navigations standards, including DVB-S2X, DVB-S2, CCSDS, and GPS.
