Communications in Space with MATLAB
In this webinar, we provide an overview of MathWorks’ end-to-end, antenna-to-bits solution for Satellite Communications, introduce new standard-based functionality in MATLAB for modeling, simulation, implementation and testing of satellite communications systems. You can visualize and model satellite orbits and perform link budget analysis and access calculations. Together with Model-Based Design principle, you can prototype and test transceivers on popular SDR hardware as well as implement your system on embedded systems such as GPUs and FPGAs.
Through case studies and examples, you will learn how to:
- Use MATLAB to perform simulations for space scenarios:
- Analyse line-of-sight access and compute link closures from satellites to ground stations or between satellites.
- Simulate multi-hop communications links between two ground stations.
- Analyse, design, and visualise link budgets for satellite communications.
- Design communication systems for space applications:
- Analyse uplinks, downlinks, and crosslinks. Calculate link margins and availability.
- Generate and demodulate DVB-S2, DVB-S2X, CCSDS, and GPS waveforms while including effects of RF front-end impairments and corrections.
- Use propagation loss models and land mobile satellite (LMS) channels for link-level simulations.
- Implement your system on embedded hardware and ground station on the cloud.
