Paper Abstract

This paper describes innovative frameworks to develop RFI modeling and prediction models for (i) estimating the RFI characteristics, (ii) evaluating effectiveness of the existing Unified S-Band (USB) command waveforms employed by civil, commercial and military SATOPS ground stations, and (iii) predicting the impacts of RFI on USB command systems. The approach presented here will allow the communications designer to characterize both friendly and unfriendly RFI sources, and evaluate the impacts of RFI on civil, commercial and military USB SATOPS systems. In addition, the proposed frameworks allow the designer to estimate the optimum transmitted signal power to maintain a required USB SATOPS Quality-of-Service (QoS) in the presence of both friendly and unfriendly RFI sources.
