Abstract [en]

Esrange Space Center, located in Kiruna, is a company which specializes in the area of satellite service as well as rocket and balloon launches. To communicate with the satellites Esrange use antennas that is between eight and thirteen meters in diameter. The antennas must always be ready to operate which is why there is a need for an application to test the antennas when they are not used.This master's thesis work aims to develop such a system that tests the antennas when they are not communicating with satellites. This report contains background information about the problem and system requirements as well as the solution and description of the developed system. It also contains an in-depth study about similar applications that has been developed by others.To solve the problem, a client-server application was developed. The server controls the test devises used to test the antennas and the client gives the users a GUI to control the server and its functions. An automated system called OASIS, developed at Esrange, was included in the solution to make it possible to automate some of the core tests.
