Challenges associated with the coordination of satellite networks has been the key incentive for the development of the Advanced package of Skycoor. Therefore, this software package is mainly intended for engineers dealing with the issues of the coordination of satellite networks. The growing demand for satellite communication services results in the abundance of new coordination requests. The purpose of the Advanced package of Skycoor is to ease engineers of the burden arising from such situation. Not only the interference risks are revealed but also an overview of the network parameters is provided for selected network. This makes the Advanced package useful during the coordination stage and for the preparation of frequency plans.
Regarding the evaluation of interference, the Advanced package offers ΔT/T, C/I and Margin calculations. Although the calculations are performed for all possible combinations it is very simple to find the cause of interference thanks to the filtering tool. The result of each calculation can be exported individually into PDF, XLS, HTML and other formats. Another feature which makes this software special is the possibility to adjust the input parameters of a network. Therefore, power can be reduced, antenna radiation pattern modified, protection ratio customized and all calculations can be carried out with respect to the altered network parameters.
Apart from calculations, the Advanced package of Skycoor is capable of browsing the SRS database data. It significantly helps to find detailed information of a network such as its power values, assignments which received unfavourable findings, frequency groups and their corresponding class of stations etc. Since some information is more comprehensible visually, graphical view of frequencies occupied by a given network is available. Naturally, this tool also enables the user to compare several networks simultaneously and thus to gain a quick overview.
