Abstract:

This paper is designed to develop a geosynchronous satellite dish positioning system which can be operated by using a remote control. Satellites are controlled by a ground station antenna (dish) an earth that sends commands and receive information from the satellite. Earlier to get the maximum signal of a particular frequency the dish is need to be positioned to the exact angle manually. Because of the difficulty of adjusting manually, this proposed system in adjusting the dish position by using IR remote control Remote control acts as a transmitter whose data is received by an IR receiver which is interfaced to a microcontroller of PIC 16F877A. The remote control sends coded data to the receiver whose output is then sent to the microcontroller. Basic pro language is also used to implement this system. The microcontroller sends the control signals to the motor through an interface known as relay driver.
