The tracking system is a functional block of satellite and navigating system that detects the presence of various electromagnetic scatterers and determines their location. During the past two decades, a considerable amount of work has gone into the development of tracking schemes for the satellite communication system.Here is a review of few techniques based on the recent researches being carried out in this field. Comparison of the most widely used four – horn and multimode monopulse tracking systems are made and as a further study of the part of dissertation, appropriate simulations based on HFSS has been carried out to support the comparison made indicating the significances and insignificances.
