DVB-SSP is a new broadcasting system for hybrid satellite communications, which supports mobile handheld systems and fixed terrestrial systems. However, a critical factor must be considered in upper layer decoding which including erasure Reed-Solomon error correction combined with cyclic redundancy check. If there is only one bit error in an IP packet, the entire IP packet is considered as unreliable bytes, even if it contains correct bytes. IF, for example, there is one real byte error, in an If packet of 512 bytes, 511 correct bytes are erased from the frame. Therefore, this paper proposed two kinds of upper layer decoding methods; LLR-based decoding and hybrid decoding. By means of simulation we show that the performance of the proposed decoding algorithm is superior to that of the conventional one.

In this paper, we present design, fabrication, and measured results for a frequency upconverter for a wireless communication system of UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The specifications of such wireless communication system requires the special features of maximum range of communication as well as deployment in UAV and repairing. The frequency upconverter operating at

input. Spuriouses were below -60 dBc and the adjacent leakage power was below -40 dBc. In addition, LO sources in the upconverter was implemented using the frequency synthesizer with step 1 MHz. This is for the application to the situation where multiple UAVs employed and the possible change of the permitted frequency band. The synthesizer showed a phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at the 100 kHz frequency offset.

Chung, Tae-Jin ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 20, issue 9, 2009, Pages 868~882
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2009.20.9.868
In this paper, channel model and wireless link performance analysis for the short-range wireless communication system applications in the terahertz frequency which is currently interested in many countries will be described. In order to realize high data rates above 10 Gbps, the more wide bandwidths will be required than the currently available bandwidths of millimeter-wave frequencies, therefore, the carrier frequencies will be pushed to THz range to obtain larger bandwidths. From the THz atmospheric propagation characteristics based on ITU-R P.676-7, the available bandwidths were calculated to be 68, 48 and 45 GHz at the center frequencies of 220, 300 and 350 GHz, respectively. With these larger bandwidths, it was shown from the simulation that higher data rate above 10 Gbps can be achieved using lower order modulation schemes which have spectral efficiency of below 1. The indoor propagation delay spread characteristics were analyzed using a simplified PDP model with respect to building materials. The RMS delay spread was calculated to be 9.23 ns in a room size of
for the concrete plaster with TE polarization, which is a similar result of below 10 ns from the Ray-Tracing simulation in the reference paper. The indoor wireless link performance analysis results showed that receiver sensitivity was
over bandwidth of
and antenna gain was calculated to be
at link distance of 10m under the BPSK modulation scheme. The maximum achievable data rates were estimated to be 30, 16 and 12 Gbps at the carrier frequencies of 220, 300 and 350 GHz, respectively, under the A WGN and LOS conditions, where it was assumed that the output power of the transmitter is -15 dBm and link distance of 1 m with BER of
. If the output power of transmitter is increased, the more higher data rate can be achieved than the above results.

Park, Gyu-Churl ; Ha, Jong-Soo ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 20, issue 9, 2009, Pages 883~889
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2009.20.9.883
Since the SRRs(Short Range Radar) load on the GVESs(Ground Vehicle Equipment System) are operated within several hundred meters, it is important to suppress the interferences between the SRRs. These interference are reduced using the frequency separation between channels, however this method isn't a perfect solution owing to a difficulty of a realization for the interference suppression. Thus, a pulse-to-pulse coding used to suppress the interference fundamentally is proposed in this paper. The concept, the application method and the test results of the proposed method have been described in this paper.

Helix antennas have been widely applied to satellite TT&C, data communication and GPS receiver systems onboard military, remote sensing and communication purpose satellites. The helix antennas are known to be convenient to control impedance and radiation coverage characteristics with a maximum directivity in satellite z-axis. Waveguide horn is commonly used for radar system that needs ultra-wideband pulse for exploration ground radar and electromagnetic disability measurement etc. It has high efficiency and low reflection characteristics provided by the low-profile shape and suppressed radiation distortion. In this paper, a waveguide horn structure incorporated with helix antenna design is proposed for satellite applications that require ultra-wideband pulse radar and high rate RF data communication link to ground station over wide coverage area. The main design concern is to synthesize variable beam forming pattern based on modified horn-helix combination helicone structure such that multi-mission antenna is implemented applicable for TT&C, earth observation, high data rate transmission. Waveguide horn helps to reduce the overall antenna structure size by introduction fold type reflector connected to the tapered helix antenna. The next generation KOMPSAT satellite currently under development requires high-performance precision attitude control system. We present an initial design of a hybrid hern-helix antenna structure suitable for efficient RF communication module design of multi-purpose satellite systems.

In this paper, X-band satellite communication oscillator of double phase locked is implemented by constructing a couple of phased-locked loop, and then we have analyzed the phase noise of designed PLL-DRO. The designed phase-locked oscillator is consist of series feedback DRO, frequency divider, phase detector, loop filter and programmable PLL-IC.

Kim, Sung-Il ; Kang, Kwang-Yong ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 20, issue 9, 2009, Pages 974~982

Photomixing techniques beating two optical signals with different wavelengths and strong correlations are also very useful techniques to make a continuous wave(CW) signals in the range of millimeter(mm) and terahertz(THz) frequencies. An optical double sideband-suppressed carrier(DSB-SC) technique is one of the popular techniques to generate two optical signals with different wavelengths and strong correlations. DSB-SC signals with strong correlations are generated by a CW modulation of an optical carrier with a local oscillator and an optical modulator. In the previous parers related the DSB-SC for producing the CW signals within the range of mm and THz frequencies, there have been no reports why the optical carrier should suppress. In order to clear that, we have analyzed and measured the characteristics of the mm-wave CW signals made by the DSB-SC photomixing in this paper. From our analysis and measurement results, compared with the case of the DSB with the maximized optical carrier, the power and phase noise have improved about 23.9 dB and 21 dBc/Hz(@ 1 MHz offset frequency) in the case of the DSB with the minimized optical carrier (that is to say, the DSB-SC). Consequently, it is evident reason that the optical carrier should sufficiently suppress to obtain the mm-wave CW signals with the high power and low noise. This paper has given very helpful data to make mm- and THz-wave CW signals using photomixing techniques with the DSB-SC because the reason why the optical carrier should be suppressed is reported in this paper based on the numerical and experimental results.
