Engineering Forum: Ground Segment Automation: Delivering Services with Greater Capacity and Reliability, but with Fewer Resources

Date of Event:
March 10th, 2014

Run Time:
13:30 - 14:45

Room Number:
207B

Track:
Engineering Forum




Ground stations have proliferated over the years, especially when you consider the quantity of video uplinks, satellite control stations, and gateways accessing the Internet and other network facilities. At one time, the quantity of these sites was measured in the dozens; now there are over one thousand significant ground stations around the world. Some operate as a single entity providing a connection for basic tracking, telemetry and command (TT&C) or origination of a TV broadcast to a particular country or market. Many ground stations are integrated into a network to deliver broadband data to local and regional markets, some national and others international. Operating these facilities is a major expense and complication since they historically have required highly trained staff and resourceful management. In this session, we will provide some guidelines for success when automating the ground segment and share the tools and best practices of leading companies that have taken automation to higher levels.
