Elliptical orbit constellations-a new paradigm for higher efficiency in space systems?

2000 IEEE Aerospace Conference. Proceedings (Cat. No.00TH8484), 2000

Several systems are being developed for satellite cellular telephone use. Examples are Iridium, Globalstar, ICO, and ELLIPSO. Systems designers seem to prefer sub-synchronous multi-satellite arrays over geostationary satellites as they can more easily communicate with small low-power handheld cellular telephones, and they also have less signal latency (time delay). The flexibility of the elliptic orbit allows a biasing of earth ...

  • Design and realization of two array triangle patch of microstrip antenna with gold plat at frequency 2400–2450 MHz for hexagonal nanosatellite

    Ministry of Education and Culture developed a nano-sized satellite technology, or so-called nanosatellite, to design Indonesia inter-University Satellite-1 (IiNUSAT-1) as a learning tool of space engineering, for the universities in Indonesia. These nano satellites orbiting in Low Earth Orbit trajectory (LEO). This satellite has a primary function for data communication. On the space segment subsystems are RSPL (Remote Sensing Payload) as an image sensor payload following the transmitter system (antenna) that can be used for sensing applications earth's surface. Based on the above conditions, this research was made of two arrays of microstrip antenna with a triangular patch. This antenna works on S-band frequency, on 2400-2450 MHz with VSWR ≤ 1.7. To meet a good data transmit ability, the antenna has been designed with gain above 6 dBi, with the transmitting range of 700 km. On the surface of the patch antenna, will be given a gold plating to extend the life of the antenna from corrosion. From the measurement results, obtained values of VSWR is 1.150 at center frequency in 2.425 GHz for the antenna with the gold plat. Gain obtained from the measurements is 6.120 dBi. This antenna has a transmit pattern of unidirectional and polarized elliptical, circular approach.

  • The design and performance of the Hughes HS-39C satellite solar arrays featuring large area solar cells

    The successful construction of the Hughes HS-393C solar arrays has demonstrated that large-area silicon solar cells are a viable design option for large space solar panels. The solar arrays used on the HS-393C satellite consist of two cylindrical solar panels. Each panel is approximately 12 ft in diameter and over 9 ft tall. The total array power is 1800 W at summer solstice after ten years in geosynchronous orbit. HS-393C is the first commercial satellite to utilize large-area (>6-cm*6-cm) silicon solar cells as the primary power source. These cells offer a significant cost advantage over more conventionally sized solar cells (<2*6 cm). Analysis after one year in orbit on the first HS-393C indicates that the arrays manufactured from these large-area cells are performing better than expected.<<ETX>>

  • Transmit beamforming and waveforms for random, sparse array radar

    We address the design of radar waveforms, transmit and receive beamforming, and signal processing in moving, sparse array antennas with randomly positioned elements. We are motivated by a concept for less expensive space based radar consisting of a formation of small, autonomous, identical satellites in nearly the same low earth orbits. The satellites operate collaboratively as a coherent, large aperture radar to detect and locate slowly moving targets near the earth surface. Limited fuel mandates that the satellites navigate only to avoid collision within array aperture limits and not necessarily to maintain any ideal array antenna configuration. Sensitive, coherent cancellation of ground reflections implies that the transmit and receive beamforming and waveforms create highly correlated space-time samples of the reflected ground clutter. Using an electromagnetic model for the ground reflected signals, we determine general, displaced phase center conditions on the transmit waveform and transmit/receive beamforming to create the highly correlated samples. The random array element positions are assumed to be known from independent measurement. We then describe a novel, iterative approach to the design of transmit and receive beamforming weights that maximizes the ratio of the output target signal to interference when the waveform conditions for signal correlation are satisfied. A constraint on the total radiated energy is implicit in the design. Results of the optimization for specific random array realizations reveal interesting conclusions: 1) The displaced phase center condition requires that the phase center of the transmit and/or receive arrays translate backwards, against the direction of array motion, with nearly identical patterns between successive pulses. When applied to the random, sparse array, we find that we may use only the complete array (without translation) and/or individual array elements, with backward translation between the elements dictated by the inter-pulse time and radar speed along the array; 2) The inter-pulse times are selected based on the random but known transmit and/or receive inter-element spacings. Criteria for selection include (1) emphasis on longer inter-pulse times to increase radar sensitivity to slowly moving targets and (2) use of multiple inter-pulse times to minimize blind speeds in the beamforming; 3) Iterative optimization of the transmit/receive beamforming with total energy constraint results in (1) nearly uniform transmit array illumination and (2) emphasis on individual receive array elements satisfying the displaced phase center condition and forming two pulse cancellers of the ground clutter. The canceller outputs are combined linearly to provide the detection statistic. Negligible loss (&lt;; 0.2 dB) results when optimization is constrained by the use of uniform, maximum gain transmit weights and only those receive elements satisfying the displaced center condition 4) Losses due to the lack of ground clutter cancellation in the displaced phase center elements are caused in part by random (and unknown) timing and element position errors. This suggests using overlapped sub-arrays in the physical element (satellite) arrays to compensate adaptively for these errors. Monte Carlo simulations reveal that with half wavelength separation between the sub-arrays, position errors on the order of one wavelength are allowable by appropriate linear combination of sub-array outputs.

  • Elliptical orbit constellations-a new paradigm for higher efficiency in space systems?

    Several systems are being developed for satellite cellular telephone use. Examples are Iridium, Globalstar, ICO, and ELLIPSO. Systems designers seem to prefer sub-synchronous multi-satellite arrays over geostationary satellites as they can more easily communicate with small low-power handheld cellular telephones, and they also have less signal latency (time delay). The flexibility of the elliptic orbit allows a biasing of earth coverage towards a given latitude. Increased coverage is obtained by placing apogees in a stable orbit over a preferred latitude. If the orbit is both elliptical and sun- synchronous, it can also be biased towards a given (local) time of day. With apogees appearing during daytime, greater capacity is ensured during the peak usage hours for telephone communications. Tailored elliptical-orbit constellations may well become the paradigm for many of these new telecommunications space systems. Lower cost elliptic-orbit constellations, with fewer satellites, may well prove more profitable than circular arrays for many other space applications, as well.

  • Editorial - Quo vadis?

    The author considers what new fields of antennas and propagation should the society welcome and foster. New fields or new emphases of old fields have come into view several times during the last several. years and will occur in the future. Signal processing antennas {also called "data processing antennas") have received a tremendous attention, most of it by antenna people. In these arrays the emphasis is on the processing behind the elements with the goal of improving antenna performance in one or more characteristics - usually at the expense of others. Example of these arrays are time-modulated arrays, self- steered arrays, multiplicative arrays, correlation arrays. The concepts can be applied to satellite arrays as well as to ground based arrays. Indications are that very large ground based arrays - for instance - will not operate properly without the use of these techniques due to atmospheric decorrelation. Some papers considering these techniques and applications are going to other journals yet these are antenna system papers. A constitutional revision may be made soon. Should it read: antenna, antenna systems, plasmas and radio astronomy systems? Aren't "astronomy systems" a special class of "antenna systems"? It seems to me that, above all we should consider the overall question: Should these antenna systems become the province of "systems" or "antennas."
