Satellite Communications Planning Services

Aurastar offers link analysis, radiation hazard analysis, and earth station site selection services.

For more complex networks, Aurastar uses an internally developed planning tool that can accommodate thousands of earth stations using multiple transponders on multiple satellites and in multiple frequency bands. That allows Aurastar to explore alternative network architectures in order to establish when and how a satellite solution may meet a client’s requirements.

For Smart Grid applications, Aurastar can advise on ways to integrate a satellite component into a terrestrial network for real time alternate routing and emergency backup for failed facilities. There are some Smart Grid applications that are so delay sensitive, they must be kept on terrestrial networks, but the use of satellite overlays may provide a solid basis for offloading non-critical traffic.
