DSP-Based RF Monitoring System from Integral Systems for Argentine ARSAT-1 Satellite

SAT Corporation, a fully-owned subsidiary of Integral Systems, Inc., will provide a DSP-based RF monitoring system to support ARSAT-1 satellite and its ground stations.

RF Monitoring Systems from Integral Systems

SAT has been selected by the Empresa Argentina de Soluciones Satelitales (AR-SAT) of Argentina to offer a Satellite Monitoring and Interference Detection and Analysis System for ARSAT-1. The ARSAT-1, the first Argentine designed and built communications satellite, will be launched in 2012.

As per the contract terms, SAT backed by Integral Systems Europe UK, its sister company, will also offer a set of C Band CSM and Ku Band service antennas at ground stations based in Bosque Alegre and Benavidez in Argentina. SAT also intends to develop and launch two more satellites, besides the ARSAT-1.

Monics, the latest RF monitoring system based on digital processing technology (DSP) of SAT will facilitate automatic monitoring of carriers of AR-SAT. The system enables the detection of interference as well as carrier monitoring features in a time frame that is a fraction of the time taken by traditional spectrum analyzer. Monics’ special algorithms also detect, classify, and display interference signals automatically, and enable these results to be observed anytime.

According to Bob Potter, the President of SAT, SAT is thrilled that AR-SAT has chosen SAT to support their need for Carrier Monitoring and Interference Detection and Analysis for the ARSAT satellites. Potter revealed that SAT’s strong foothold in the industry enables it to collaborate with companies, such as AR-SAT, for providing a system that helps them attain their aims of very high skills in operation.
