Honghua Zhao, Weiwei Chen, Yang You, Hui Xiong

Abstract


In this paper, an algorithm is proposed to calculate the occlusion angle range of the ship in navigation when using satellite communication. This method can quickly calculate the angle of the satellite communication occlusion according to the ship's position, satellite‘s height, longitude and latitude. According the occlusion angle range, the manager could judge the reason of satellite communication disconnection.
