Up to date reports on the date and time when your satellites will be close to the centre of their station keeping box.
Up to date orbital elements for the satellites in our fleet. Provided in two formats: IESS-412 11-parameters and two line element set (TLE). Files are refreshed every hour.
Use the map data to determine the date and time when the sun will be aligned (directly behind) with the earth station - satellite path.
Use this tool to estimate the date, time and duration of a sun transit event which could affect your earth station.
Use this tool to calculate the approximate satellite communications angles for your ground antenna.
Satellite Operator's Minimum Performance Requirements (SOMAP)
This document explains the SOMAP goals and objectives and the need for Comms-On-The-Move antenna system performance data. It provides the list of mandatory data required as of September 1st, 2018. Further, the reader may find guidance on the interpretation of the data in the SOMAP Matrix.
This document lists the requirements of the satellite operators in the SOMAP group for antenna models and systems newly introduced to the market as of September 1st, 2018. The matrix is specified for C-Band, Ku-Band and Ka-Band. It is based on a “Highly Recommended” Agreement, however, the participating satellite operators are determined to apply the content in the regular antenna approval process.
SOMAP Antenna Datasheet Contents
The data in this document can be a reference for manufacturers of Satellite Communication antennas and antenna systems. The content displays the suggested antenna performance data which would be of valuable assistance for satellite operators to find on product datasheets.
