With the new year we have a new release with AGI Components 2009 r1 and a new component: Communications Library.
It's been a while since our last release as we've been working hard on a slew of new features related to satellite and ground communications. This includes: antenna gain patterns, wireless propagation models, modelling transmitter and receiver hardware components, generating "link budgets", access constraints, and figures of merit. We compute link budget parameters such as Carrier to Noise, Bit Error Rate, Propagation Loss, and many others. For more detailed information, see our online documentation on the ADN.
