Satellite Communication Lab - SCT06

The Amitec Satellite Communication Training Lab SCT06 is a highly configurable and adaptable training and research and development system optimized to implement modern communication technologies. The complete system consists of Earth Station Transmitting Emulator, Earth Station Receiving Emulator and Satellite Emulator. All three sub-systems consist of Software Programmable Hardware transceiver which allows limitless satellite communication laboratory experiments to be performed on a single setup. Implement existing satellite communication standards using real-world modulation schemes and parameters. Software programmability of the system allows
it to be upgraded, making it obsolesce-proof.

Study and implement a wide range of communication concepts such as various modulation schemes, including NBFM, WBFM, DBPSK, DQPSK, QAM and custom modulation, packetisation, whitening, scrambling, differential encoding, error correction coding schemes and channel models. Study real-time performance and measurement of parameters such as link budget, packet error rate and other concepts. Learn the use and implementation of telemetry signals.

Observe and measure the effect of different antennas and study the characteristics. The entry barrier is lowered to include the under graduate students by providing a graphical programming environment. The burden on faculty is lowered by using courseware designed
at Amitec from simple FM to most complex Modulation techniques. The systems offer high bandwidth and dynamic range.
Study Orbital mechanics with a license-free tool. Configure various orbits, launch sites and parameters to implement a realworld
system and adapt the system in real-time.
