This thesis addresses the design of an interactive satellite communications system analysis program. The program provides the capability to analyzedesign a system comprised of two earth terminals and one or two geosynchronous satellites. The principal goal is to simplify the analysisdesign process via a graphically-oriented, menu-driven computer program. The program leads the user methodically through the process and provides feedback that enables the user to visualize the elements of the system and their role relative to the other system components. Hypertext concepts are employed in an object- oriented programming environment to achieve the graphics orientation. The success of the program validates the use of innovative software tools to design programs that can enhance user understanding and increase productivity.
