UHF to Ku


Modern unidirectional video links rely on DVB-T digital transmission to send a single digital video stream from an aircraft to a ground station. Each transmission channel requires 8MHz bandwidth. Typical transmitters first “encode” the video signal using an MPEG2 or MPEG4 video encoder. “One-way” audio and data can also be added. To minimize errors in the transmission, forward error correction is used to send extra coded data to the ground receiver to improve recovery of any partially corrupted transmissions. In addition many of Troll’s customers encrypt their data prior to transmission to prevent unwanted reception by unauthorized users.
