The Graphical Interference Management System for PC, or GIMS, is a PC-based software package which allows the capture and modification of graphical data (service areas, antenna gain contours and gain towards the geostationary orbit) relating to the electronic notification of geostationary satellite networks in the space radiocommunications services.
It also allows for carrying out Power Flux Density (PFD) calculations using graphical data captured via this product either by using the digitiser or by importing a file in the GXT format.
As of version 8.0, GIMS can also handle graphical data for non-geostationary satellite networks in the forms of images, primarily for the purpose of perusal.
In version 13.0, GIMS allows the capture of service areas for non-geostationary satellite networks that are defined by geographical areas.
This product is available only in English.
