Satellite Channel Simulator
IZT satellite channel simulators provide a costeffective and time-saving method of simulating complete bidirectional satellite transmission links without the actual satellites being available.
- Comprehensive modelling of the satellite channel
- Complex operating scenarios for testing transceivers, terminals and satellites
- Hand-off simulation for complex satellite constellations
- Frequency range up to 3 GHz with a bandwidth of 250 MHz
Complex operating scenarios for testing transceivers, terminals and satellites can be simulated. Effects due to modifications to the transmission method, the satellite or the terminal equipment can be simulated before implementation with the IZT satellite channel simulator.
During the lifetime of the satellites, the satellite channel simulator can be used to simulate and analyze effects and problems. IZT satellite channel simulators provide excellent signal quality and a comprehensive simulation of effects on a satellite channel.
The IZT C5040’s optimized and scalable signal processing units offer real-time simulation of influences on the signal at the satellite (non linearity, IMUX / OMUX filter, phase noise, interference, antenna gain, Doppler shift) as well as on the transmission link (interference, rain fading, scintillation, reflections, thermal noise). The state-of-the-art Graphical User Interface (GUI) allows changing all parameters of the setup easily. Remote control is possible through SCPI and SNMP.
With the IZT C5040 satellite based communication systems can be extensively simulated and tested prior to their realization. In addition, complex operational scenarios for equipment (receivers, transmitters, satellite phones) and satellite testing can be set up in a very cost-effective way. The IZT C5040 is a scalable system based on individual hardware units that can be configured from uni-directional links to bi-directional links with hundreds of terminals.
