Abstract

A communications satellite using multiple beams in low earth orbit has a relatively short beam in view time. This paper describes a test apparatus which assesses the performance of a satellite com- munications system while deployed in a low earth orbit. This apparatus can also be used to perform on-orbit calibration of the transponder.
