Multi-Hop, Time-Varying SatCom Link Analysis
Use Satellite Communications Toolbox™ to create a satellite scenario that models a multi-hop link with two satellites and two ground stations.
With Satellite Communications Toolbox, you can:
- Specify the satellite orbits using standard orbital elements such as semimajor axis, eccentricity, and inclination.
- Model transmitters, receivers, and steerable gimbals for the satellites and ground stations.
- Populate the transmitters and receivers with gaussian antennas.
- Specify the pointing of each transmit and receive antenna to maximize the received power at each node in the link.
- Use a free space path loss model to calculate the received Eb/No at each node in the link.
- Propagate the orbits for a day and calculate when the multi-hop link closes.
- Show the link closures graphically with a three-dimensional view of the earth.
- Show them textually, in a table that lists the beginning and end times of each link closure throughout the day.
- Use the Satellite Scenario Viewer to play the scenario animation at any desired speed, to rewind the animation, to pause it, and to jump to any point in the timeline.
