Solventless Adhesive Systems
Not Available The objective of this proposal is to explore concepts and technologies for lightweight, low power, high data rate, secure and standards based satellite local area network (LAN) and associated inter-satellite link (ISLs) communication systems. An operational concept will be defined with realistic satellite LAN missions composed of clusters of satellites in close proximity and more distant locations joined through wireless ISLs to form a virtual spacecraft. Various combinations of satellites are linked into a LAN via ISLs to form different virtual spacecraft, each capable of conducting unique and required missions. Requirements from the operational scenarios will be used to identify, analyze and evaluate existing, in development and proposed concepts, architectures, hardware and software for implementing a satellite LAN and virtual satellites. Candidate architectures, hardware and software components will be identified from existing and in development wireless communication systems and components. Candidate architectures, hardware and software system concepts that appear to meet the satellite LAN and mission requirements will be selected for more detailed evaluation, specification and analysis. Analytical and simulation modeling will be used to validate final system implementation recommendations.
