Satfinder - Satellite Database & Calculation Software

Description:    THE DATABASE SECTION
                has information on over 500 satellites (orbital location, frequencies, EIRP, G/T, SFD, bandwidth,
                programming etc.) and 9,000 companies (address, tel, fax, web, products, services and contact
                names etc.) and 19,000 executives in the commercial satellite industry. Containing a very fast
                search ability plus over 800 hundred EIRP, G/T & SFD maps in color not published anywhere else

                THE CALCULATION SECTION
                Has full up-down digital link budget calculators with input provision for uplink power control (UPC),
                ALC, various interferences and multiple carriers. Finds HPA size, uplink power requirements,
                bandwidth and power usage per carrier. Calculates atmospheric losses and rain fade margins for
                any desired availability on uplink and downlink. Handles BPSK, QPSK, M-PSK or M-QAM with any
                FEC code rate. Determines power or bandwidth limited modes and calculates the power equivalent
                bandwidth, if appropriate. Provision for RS codes or 'Turbo' modems. Option for rain up AND rain
                down scenarios where uplink and downlink are from/to the same city.

                Database Section
                Users can search from amongst Company Information, Satellite Details, What's On Satellite, Uplink
                Providers, Country Standards and a full List of Executives.

                Used by Broadcasters, SNG operators, VSAT designers, dish installation companies and dealers
                serving the satellite TV industry. Calculation capacity including dish aiming, link budget analysis
                and solar outage prediction provide the backbone of the package. The link budget facilities employ
                rain attenuation and atmospheric absorption prediction modeling even for low elevations. These
                and other useful features, such as an integral magnetic variation calculation and over 30,000 stored
                town/city coordinates, combine to enable a system to be either designed for any global location.
                Designed to be very simple to use, it works just like any other Windows application with pull-down
                menus, toolbar for shortcuts, dialog boxes, text and graphics windows, a status bar and a
                comprehensive help system.

                You can calculate the following:

Link Budget Calculators
Full up-down digital link budget calculators with provision for interference input, uplink power
control (UPC), ALC, E.S. intermodulation. interference and multiple carriers per HPA. Finds HPA
size, uplink power requirements, bandwidth and power usage per carrier. Calculates atmospheric

simple radio button selection. For the ITU-R model it is also possible to enter locally obtained R0.01
values in mm/.

Atmospheric Losses
For low elevation paths, atmospheric absorption and tropospheric scintillation losses are significant.
The program calculates these parameters as standard but there is also an option to zero these
parameters for comparison with other link budget tools that neglect them.

processes to produce listings for either multiple sites, or multiple satellites, ready for pasting into
MS Excel or a similar spreadsheet program.

Dual / Multi Feed Calculations

atmospheric absorption, dish parabolas, lobe patterns and much more. There is also a BER v Eb/No
reference chart for Reed Solomon concatenated Viterbi codes and 'turbo' codecs at various FEC
