In this paper, we address the optimal ground antenna scheduling problem for multiple satellites when multiple satellites have visibility conflicts at a ground station. Visibility conflict occurs when multiple satellites have either overlapping visibilities at a ground station or difference with time of loss of signal (LOS) of a satellite and time of acquisition of signal (AOS) of another satellite is less than reconfiguration time of ground station. Each satellite has a priority value that is a weight function with various factors. Multi-antenna scheduling (MAS) algorithm 1 and Multi-antenna scheduling (MAS) algorithm 2 are proposed to find the optimal schedule of multi-antenna at a ground station using pre-assigned priority values of satellites. We use the depth first search (DFS) method to search the optimal schedule in MAS algorithm 1 and MAS algorithm 2. Through the simulations, we confirm the efficiency of these algorithms by comparing with greedy algorithm.
