AbstractThis paper discusses command techniques that are employed for weather and communication satellites. The introduction describes the essential requirements for a command system. Detection of the baseband signal is analyzed with error budgets assigned to the command receiver. Subsequent discussions consider the command processor, low power, decrypters, critical commands, bus supply, remote command distribution, and redundancy. Finally, the command function in an operational spacecraft is presented.
