Pointing & Tracking

  • Position control to within 0.0005 degrees RMS error
  • Steptrack accuracy to within 10% RMS of -3dB beamwidth 
  • Predictive Track accuracy to within 5% RMS of -3dB beamwidth 
  • Monopulse tracking to within 3% RMS of -3dB beamwidth 

Operating Modes

  • Step Track
    Tracking algorithm performing periodic and or level triggered scans to peak up signal strength (requires beacon receiver).
  • Predictive Track
    Points the satellite dish using an orbital model created from previous AZ and EL step-track data (requires beacon receiver). 
  • Monopulse
    Automatically acquires target, peak phase align and calibrate to begin tracking with monopulse tracking receiver. Transfers to predictive model or ephemeris tracking on loss of monopulse signal.
  • TLE (Two-Line Element)
    Model based pointing derived from NORAD two-line element sets.
  • IESS-412 ( Intelsat 11)
    Automated pointing of AZ and EL axes based on look angles derived from IESS-412 parameters.
  • TLE + Step Track
    Pointing algorithm based on TLE parameters with the addition of a velocity based step-track to provide the most accurate pointing possible from TLE data (requires beacon receiver).
  • IESS-412 + Step Track
    IESS-412 pointing algorithm with the addition of a velocity based step-track to provide accurate pointing (requires beacon receiver).
  • Manual
    Variable speed jog control for AZ and EL axes from ACP GUI.
  • Move to Look Angles
    Position to user-provided AZ, EL and Pol angles.
  • Move to Longitude
    Position to AZ and EL angles determined from the longitudinal orbital slot.
