Abstract

There are many problems in manual configuration of dish antennas that are the human errors, misalignment, finding the look angles for every other dish to be installed. This paper aims to present and discuss the development of an automated system for aligning the parabolic reflector antennas for satellite communication. This work automates the steps involved in the manual alignment of an antenna dish. Based on procedures for the manual alignment a satellite dish, was proposed an architecture that employs hardware solutions to this problem. In order to get the exact angle of position of the dish, it needs to be adjusted manually. To overcome the difficulty of manual alignment of antenna, this project helps in aligning the position of the dish using the GPS module. The proposed system will use GPS Module to retrieve the latitude and longitude of the location. Further a formula has been implemented to calculate the elevation and azimuth with respect to the location of the satellite. This solution allows for better placement of the antenna.
