Abstract:
Employment of the retro-directive technique described in Reference 1 describes a totally Autonomous Ground Station providing hemispheric coverage and continuous tracking. This System establishes communications between the satellite and ground station without human intervention or moving parts. When a satellite is in view, the ground station beacon antenna, using CDMA, enables the desired satellite transmitter and directs its beam to the ground station. The ground station, using the satellite’s transmitted signal, directs it’s receive and transmit arrays to point the ground station beams to the satellite, establishing two-way communications. The process is automatic and provides continuous horizon to horizon tracking.
