Abstract:
A recently tested antenna pointing control system for gimbaled antennas has been developed. A modified TDRSS user transponder produces pointing error signals from the S-band forward link which in turn drive the Steering Control Electronics (SCE) to precision steer a S-/Ku-band Data and S-band Tracking (KDST) planar array. A successful test of the pointing and data handling capabilities is described and plans for further tests, incorporating additional refinements, are presented.
