On-Board Processing for Advanced Tactical Satellite Communications
The project is identifying and developing technology for advanced tactical satellite communications as a long-term option to replace or augment current high mobility satellite communications services. The project proposes the use of Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and On-Board Processing (OBP) of the communications waveform in space. So-called “regenerative payloads” offer significant performance benefits compared to “bent-pipe” payloads.
