Tracking Algorithm The RC3500 tracking algorithm can be divided into three distinct stages – STEP TRACK, MEMORY TRACK, and SEARCH. In STEP TRACK, the controller periodically peaks the receiver’s AGC signal strength by jogging the antenna. The time and position are recorded in a track table maintained in the controller’s non-volatile memory. The interval between peakups is determined by antenna beam width (determined from antenna size and frequency band), satellite inclination and a user specified maximum allowable error (in dB). When a track table entry exists for the current sidereal time, STEP_TRACK switches to MEMORY_TRACK.A low threshold of 43dBHz, fast re-acquisition of less than 1s and high linearity, manufactured by Novella Satcoms Ltd.’s receivers the preferred choice for small antenna field deployable stations (C,X , Ku and Ka Band) requiring fast automatic satellite acquisition.
