Abstract

 This paper focuses on the performance analysis of aeronautical satellite baseband link including Aircraft Transmitter, Uplink (AWGN channel), Satellite Transponder, Downlink (AWGN channel), and Ground Earth Station (GES) Receiver. Impact of a modulation type (BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK, 16QAM), Eb/N0, satellite transponder amplifier gain without and with coding on Binary Error Rate (BER) was investigated. Effectiveness of error detection and correction for “Aircraft-to-Satellite-to-Ground” link was analyzed using classic linear block codes, like Hamming’s (7, 4) code.
