Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Link performance analysis of disaster monitoring system
by Ge, Zhangbin, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 46; 1466131
Abstract (Summary)

In this paper, the main performances of the Disaster monitor system based on Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite technologies have been analyzed in order to evaluate their suitability and functionality for Disaster monitor system (DMS). The STK software (Analytical Graphics, Inc.) is used to simulate and monitor communication between satellite and terrain infrastructures. The Sichuan earthquake, which struck China earlier this year, has been considered as a scenario in the project. In particular, the carriers to noise ratio, interference, and the effective link budget have been evaluated in the simulation. The results show how the application of LEO satellite-based communication technologies exhibits a set of intrinsic advantages that could be particularly gainful in disaster monitoring system.
