Abstract
Addresses the problem of characterization, detection and identification of SATCOM stresses beginning with an annotated bibliography of open literature reports and papers. The stresses, described in detail include effects due to tropospheric conditions, ionospheric conditions, transponder related anomalies, orbital errors, antenna pointing errors, and interference (both intentional and unintentional). Following an extensive list of sources of information (sensors/indicators) that can facilitate detection and identification of SATCOM stress, the sensitivity of these indicators to the stresses is investigated. The study proposes a novel automated monitor, called a generalized pseudo-error rate (GPER) monitor, which exploits the key features of an eye-diagramto provide a pseudo-error indicator with significantly better sensitivity than the traditional pseudo-error monitor.
