Network Voting System

ECS has developed and deployed solutions extending the capability of a single receive site to an unlimited operational area

  • The Network Voting System consists of multiple ground receiver sites, which may be controlled and monitored over a wide area network by ECS NVS Control Software
  • The NVS incorporates multiple ground receiver sites to provide downlink reception beyond the capabilities of a single fixed site

Product Description

Simultaneous downlinks from multiple platforms may be distributed to monitoring sites across the network. The downlink signal is converted to IP data before being delivered securely and bandwidth efficiently, across the customer’s own wide area network, to a monitoring point or multiple points of the customer’s choosing. A voting technique is used to select the best real time downlink signal available, from the multiple deployed receiving sites. The system uses signal quality and packet error data to select the most consistently reliable downlink feed for each channel. It incorporates a hysteresis effect to minimize unnecessary switching while remaining responsive to sudden data losses. Control of the system is via a NVS Control Software, which may be located anywhere on the network.
