Adding an earth station to a network in AuraGateway can be as simple as
specifying a location. The program will apply an earth station template and
insert a fully expanded earth station at that location. The user then edits
parameters such as antenna size, amplifier temperature, etc. Effectively, this
allows the user to specify as much information as he/she has, and use default
values for everything else.
For the more experienced user, the program accepts a comma separate variable
(CSV) file input where the entire specification for over 30,000 earth stations
can be prepared in a spreadsheet, exported into the CSV format, and imported
directly into AuraGateway.
