The Influence of Antenna Radiation Pattern to the Link Performance between LEO Terminals and Relay Satellite

Qu Xiaoyun, Yang Zhiqun, and Li Xiangyang
Abstract—The Relay Satellite acts as the bridge between the user spacecrafts and the ground stations. The link performance between the relay satellites-Tianlian-1 and LEO terminals is analyzed using STK software in this paper. For small user terminal system, the link performance of the user spacecraft to the relay satellite has great relation to characteristic of the antenna pattern except for the orbit of the user spacecraft. Taking the satellite at height of 500km earth orbit for consideration, the access simulation are performed at different orbit inclination and different antenna pattern types of the user spacecrafts. From the simulation result, the relationship among the antenna pattern, the orbit inclination and the total access duration is shown intuitively, the access region and the access times are also shown directly at the same time. The simulation results are helpful for the system design for lower power cost and longer access time.

Index Terms—Relay satellite, tianlian-1, LEO, simulation, antenna pattern, STK.
