Title: Basic Components and Characteristics of Satellite Communication Links


Abstract:
Participants will learn basic components and characteristics of earth stations, satellite, and communication links.  Topics to be covered include Decibels and Backoffs, Antenna Gain and Polarization; G/T and EIRP Values and Footprints; ALC, SFD and PAD Attenuation; Modulation, FEC Coding, and BER-Eb/No Performance; Multiplexing and Multiple Access; Propagation, Sun Transit and Rainfall Effects; Allocated Bandwidth, Power Equivalent Bandwidth.

Biography:
Dr. Xuyen T. Vuong
Dr. Vuong is Chief Scientist at ARTEL where he is also Chief Engineer of the $2.1B DSTS-G program.  Through the DSTS-G program, he has been responsible for design of satellite links and networks to support various applications using almost 6000 MHz of bandwidth on 60 FSS GSO satellites from Eutelsat, Intelsat, SES, Telesat, EchoStar, Hispamar, GE Satellite, XTAR, Paradigm, and JSAT.  He cofounded VT TECH Corp. and provided consulting work to Hughes Network Systems (as a systems engineer in network security and network management for the design of the Ka-band Spaceway satellite system), to NASA/Glenn Research Center (on satellite technology and commercial LEO mission services to complement TDRSS), to Motorola (on traffic analysis of the Ka-band Teledesic system), Comtech Mobile Datacom (on test plans and testing of CDMA modems on the NOAA/GOES satellite), AsiaSat (on satellite technical parameters and earth stations' operational constraints).  His former employers include Canadian Astronautics, Comsat Labs, GTE Spacenet, SAIC, SPAR Aerospace, and Telesat Canada.
Dr. Vuong received his BSEE in 1971 from California State University, MEng (Electrical) in 1973 from Carleton University, and PhD in 1976 from University of Western Ontario.  Prior to going to industry, he briefly taught at University of Ottawa and Concordia University.
