The basic aim of satellite link budgeting is to model the various segments of a link in terms of power and noise, in order to determine the constraints placed upon the satellite and its earth stations. In this paper we discuss a sophisticated software package which allows the designer to view the link budgeting problem from any perspective and to shape a budget according to the chosen optimization criteria. The package provides simple access and editing techniques for both the design and performance variables through the use of menus and a set of link design forms. An example of its use in the design of digital satellite communication links is presented.
