This paper introduces a MATLAB toolbox for Satellite Communications. The SatCom toolbox contains a complete set of necessary functions for parameters calculations of Satellite communications. Along with these functions, few demo programs are designed to illustrate the use of the toolbox, few GUIs are designed for complex calculations and a Simulink model in MATLAB is designed for complete Satellite Link signal level estimation. The whole toolbox is integrated in the overall GUI "SatComToolBox". Satellite communications is one of the growing fields in the communication area where terrestrial infrastructures are unable or ineffective to supply communication links. During natural disasters where ground services are stopped, satellite communications has great importance.
