Featured: Satellite Solar Outage Calculator

Sun Outages Start in late February

Sun outages cause a signal loss when the sun is directly in alignment with your satellite signal. The thermal energy from the sun creates an interfering signal with the satellite signal causing an outage.

Satellite Bandwidth Calculator

Compare the performance of links side by side based on spectral performance determined by mod/cod selection and then add in space segment costs. Thinking about spending a bit more on your hardware or bandwidth? This tool will help to analyze where you should spend your money.

Eb/No to Es/No Converter

Convert Energy Per Bit into Energy Per Symbol. As satellite communications has moved more towards adaptive coding and modulation as a standard, it is more useful to measure the energy per symbol of a link since the number of symbols in a carrier may change as the satellite carrier adapts to noise conditions.

Convert Eb/No to Es/No

Signal To Noise Ratio

Calculate your signal to noise. Experienced communications engineeers understand the importance of reducing the noise in a given link. All too often links are compared based on their power without considering the noise performance. Reducing your noise performance can be equally or more significant than increasing your signal power.

Signal to Noise Ratio

Shannon Capacity Calculator

Calculate the performance of a communications link per the Shannon-Hartley theorem based on signal and noice. The important takeaway here is the noise performance on your link throughput.
