Abstract:

The design and construction of a Signal Selection Unit and four Spectrum Receivers for use in the Naval Postgraduate Schools SATCOM Signal Analyzer are presented. The purpose of the SATCOM Signal Analyzer is to provide high-speed spectrum analysis and characterization of the outputs of UHF communication satellite transponders in orbit. It is constructed around a PDP-1134 minicomputer which provides the necessary control for most of the equipment of the system. Extremely accurate frequency measurement is provided by the frequency receivers and signals for multi-channel spectrum analyses are provided by the Spectrum Receivers. The Signal Selection Unit routes signals to the Spectrum, AMFM, and Frequency Receivers. This report documents the design and development of the Spectrum Receivers and the Signal Selection Unit.
