Tutorial

Tutorial: Practical Satellite Link Design

 

Speaker: Xuyen T. Vuong
ARTEL Inc.
Reston, Virginia, USA

 

Abstract of the talk:

Participants will learn basic components and characteristics of earth station, space station, and satellite communication link. 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; Allocated Bandwidth, Power Equivalent Bandwidth, and Availability Calculation; ITU Rules/Regulations and Satellite Operator Constraints. No prior knowledge in satellite communications is necessary. At the end, participants will be able to complete design of a duplex Ku-band link between, say, HoChiMinh City and Hanoi using VINASAT-1.

 

Biographical Sketch:

Dr. X.T. Vuong is Chief Scientist at ARTEL where he is also Chief Engineer of the $5B FCSA program that is replacing the expiring DSTS-G program with add-on. Through the FCSA/DSTS-G program, he has been responsible for design of satellite links and networks to support various applications using nearly 6 GHz of bandwidth on over 60 FSS satellites from Eutelsat, Intelsat, SES, Telesat, EchoStar, Hispamar/Hispasat, GE Satellite, XTAR, Paradigm/Skynet, Asiasat, ABS, 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 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.
