English term or phrase: Disk-Aimer
En una texto sobre satélites y antenas parabólicas dice: "AOPA manual and "Disk-Aimer" application software (provides exact angle measurements necessary to aim a satellite dish at many desired commercial satellte locations".

¿Cual sería la traducción en español de "Disk-Aimer", si la hubiere?

Gracias a todos, de antemano.

ORIENTACIÖN (OPTIMA) DEL SATELITE


Explanation:
1. http://helios.etsit.upv.es/asig/quinto/tel_espa/sat_tv/captu...

"Para recibir señales de varios satélites el usuario de una instalación individual tiene una posibilidad incluso más flexible que la del multisatélite, la incorporación de un actuador lineal o tracker a su instalación. El tracker es un dispositivo de orientación automática que proporciona el movimiento necesario para poder rastrear con el disco parabólico un arco celeste de unos 180° y memoriza la posición de la antena necesaria para captar la señal de cada uno de los satélites situados en este arco. El tracker se compone básicamente de un brazo telescópico que se extiende y contrae comandado por una unidad de control computerizado."

THIS definition is in same way similar to yours (provides exact angle measurements necessary to aim a satellite dish at many desired commercial satellte locations).

2.
I found no DIRECT reference for 'disk aimer', whether as a term or brand, so it appears NOT to be a standard term. For 'dish aimer', yes:

"We also produce satellite dish aimers, or peakers; a total of 9 styles. The newest is the Knimmick Gimmick, easy-to-use, very sensitive, and complete with instructions and hookup cable, and aiming instructions for the new Nimiq satellite. This great dish aimer is $79; commercial ( dealer ) versions are $99"


Peakers: the implication of the word is 'optimización (de orientación)'

I suggest the above, with/without 'optima'
