Abstract:

The channel capacity of a communication satellite repeater is of direct interest to all users in assessing how much service they may expect to obtain from a particular satellite or system. This is especially so when one considers that many users may attempt to gain access to a communication satellite simultaneously and without prior notice - the multiple and random access problem. The purpose of this paper is to present a method for estimating the channel capacities of various generic types of communication satellites which may be considered as alternates for successive generations of development.
