 Abstract
This paper proposes a Ku-band multi-mode coupler and its monopulse tracking system, which can be applied to a unmaned aircraft vehicle(UAV) platform. In general, the carrier-to-noise(C/N) level of the beacon signal from a Ku-band commercial satellite is relatively weak compared to that of a military satellite because the Ku-band satellite has been designed for commercial services. Therefore, this paper proposes a coupler and its multi-mode monopulse tracking system satisfying the tracking accuracy under a low C/N environment and analyzes the tracking accuracy. After that, we perform a real satellite tracking test and compare the accuracy of the test with the analysis result before validating the performance of the architecture of the proposed satellite tracking system.
