Abstract:
The continuing demand for mobile communication and the growing congestion of currently assigned frequency bands has precipitated the development of K/Ka band mobile-satellite technology. The Jet Propulsions Lab (JPL), using the Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS), has conducted prototype testing of a K/Ka band mobile-satellite link. The JPL system uses a narrow beam antenna which tracks the satellite signal. As the JPL vehicle experienced changes in yaw, pitch, and roll, the antenna experienced a pointing error. A model to describe the power losses caused by pointing error is developed. This model shows a received power loss on the order of 2.0 dB.
