SCM_GIS (2011)


Geographical Information System for Communication Payload Operation

The goal of the proposed activity is a design, architecture and specification of a software module giving the possibility to connect the information from the uplink system to the RF carrier and from the carrier to the respective uplink station using maps with different layers.

The new final product is an additional software tool used in the communication payload operation of satellite operators and satellite network operators. It will provide a significant benefit for operators in their daily operation and monitoring activities by integrating existing data with their spatial arrangement in near real time.
