Abstract

Jet Propulsion Laboratory flight projects and the Deep Space Network require accurate prediction of telecommunications link capability. Link capability determines spacecraft command message error rate, science data telemetry error rate, and radiometric angle, velocity, and position errors during a mission. To establish link performance capability, the analyst commonly translates these error rates into corresponding signal-to-noise ratios or received signal power levels. To validate predicted capability, the analyst compares actual (measured) signal-to-noise ratios or signal levels with previously predicted values for the same link configuration and time.
