Abstract:
The Canadian Domestic Communications Satellite, “ANIK”, which is scheduled for launch in November 1972, will become the space segment of the first domestic geostationary satellite system. The satellite communication system consists of an all microwave 12 channel repeater in conjunction with a 60 in. shaped beam solar transparent parabolic reflector and associated feed. This paper discusses the “ANIK” satellite communication system design. Overall system performance parameters, including G/T and EIRP coverage of Canada, are presented. The repeater is broken down into three major items; wideband receiver, multiplexers, and channel amplifiers. Typical performance data is given for each of these items. The antenna design is considered and the receive and transmit feed networks are presented. Emphasis is placed on the dual mode nature of the transmit function of the antenna.
