AbstractA key problem in establishing and maintaining high quality communication repeater links among users, where the vehicle for retransmission is a synchronous orbit communications satellite, is that of enhancing the limited effective radiated power (ERP) capabilities of the smaller user against the not always so limited ERP capabilities of co-users or other sources of rf interference. The adaptive array which can supply narrow high gain custom shaped individualized beams weighted to reflect the ratio of user power to thermal noise and at the same time minimize the capacity reducing effects of intentional or unintentional rf interference emitters appears to be the most effective means of improving overall performance at least system cost.
