Input section design in multi-beam high throughput satellite (HTS) payloads
High throughput satellite (HTS) systems are in demand by taking advantage of frequency reuse and multiple spot beams to increase throughput and reduce the cost per bit delivered. Payload design concepts are different compared to conventional bent-pipe and limited wide-beam payloads due to nature of HTS complexity and connectivity of the links inside satellite payload, regardless of spectrum choice. This study is focused on different input section design schemes in multi-beam HTS payloads by investigating advantages and drawbacks of multipack and shared power supply concepts.
