dc.description.abstractThe TDRSS performance is based, to a large extent, on the ability to maintain phase coherency between user, satellite, and ground segment. This is especially true for the MA return subsystem, which uses coherent referencing for multiplexing and demultiplexing between the TDRS and ground processor. Phase noise appearing on these referencing waveforms destroy the phase coherency, and will degrade the overall MA return operation. In this paper the manner in which this phase referencing is achieved is described. In addition, the results of a preliminary study to distinguish the key MA return phase noise sources, and the manner in which each will ultimately influence performance, is presented. The results show that the return phase noise effects can be separated into "coherent" and "noncoherent" contributions, and each must be separately evaluated. The effect of the various tracking loop bandwidths throughout the link is shown, and the manner in which the specific phase noise spectra are eventually filtered is developed.
