Abstract

Satellites of a non-geostationary communication system may be victims of harmful interference produced by terrestrial fixed service (FS) transmitting stations operating in the same frequency band. It is important to the satellite system operator to identify the specific areas on Earth’s surface containing the FS stations that are responsible for such interference. This would be a first step for solving the problem via bilateral coordination with each of the involved FS operators. This work presents a mathematical model for the problem and proposes that the identification of these areas be made though the estimation of the transmitted power and the antenna pointing (azimuth and elevation angles) of the various FS stations, based on received power measurements taken on the beams of a test non-GSO satellite. This work also investigates the particular aspects of the problem and proposes the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) as the algorithm for estimation.
