Attachment 7, Appendix A2. GBS Standard Link Budget

I. Requirements

A. The 24 Mbps link from PIP through the UFO Transponder and down the NSB to the FGRT shall:

1. have 15.0 dB power margin over that required to just close the uplink at an Eb/No at the demodulator corresponding to 10^-10 BER(RS-CC(2/3 K=7)) given a lossless downlink.

2. have 5.8 dB power margin over that required to just close the downlink at a Eb/No at the demodulator corresponding to 10^-10 BER (RS-CC(2/3 K=7)) given a lossless uplink.

B. The 6 Mbps link from TIP through the UFO Transponder and down the NSB the FGRT shall have 10.7 dB power margin over that required to just close the downlink at an Eb/No at the demodulator corresponding to 10^-10BER(RS-CC(2/3 K=7)) given a lossless uplink.
