Start Beam Hopping Development Today

SatixFy has developed a Beam Hopping Emulator, based on its advanced SX3000 SDR ASIC. The Emulator enables research, development integration and testing of various aspects of the Beam Hopping architecture using SatixFy’s and other vendors’ commercially available terminals. Customers can use the Emulator to demonstrate the physical layer functionality over a wide range of scenarios.

The Emulator is key for any satellite operator, payload manufacturer and ground equipment manufacturer, for testing and analysis of the emerging Beam Hopping technology. It is also a very helpful tool in supporting customer demonstration of Beam Hopping system advantages, such as:

  • Full beam hopping system functionality
  • Service flexibility and reduced unmet demand
  • Payload design optimization
  • Increase total capacity
  • Test equipment homologation

Beam Hopping Emulator Overview

The Emulator first release enables validation and demonstration of the forward link Layer-1(PHY) most critical Beam Hopping elements:

The Emulator is key for any satellite operators, payload manufacturers and ground equipment manufacturers for testing and analysis of the emerging Beam Hopping technology. It is also a very helpful tool in supporting customer demonstration of Beam Hopping system advantages, such as:

  • DVB-S2X super-frame type 4 structure as a physical layer enabler for Beam Hopping.
  • Demonstration of different Beam Hopping parameters such as:
    • Modem performance
    • Hopping period
    • Dwell time
    • Switching time
    • Guard time
    • Non-standard super-frame
  • Testing the TT&C Beam Hopping management interface to the satellite payload and baseband systems
  • Optional Satellite Link Emulator for advanced RF impairment

Additional features such as Return link, Mobility, VLSNR will be added in future versions
