Abstract:

THE PORTABLE/MOBILE X-BAND SATCOM TERMINAL FEASIBILITY STUDY, ADDRESSES A PERCEIVED REQUIREMENT FOR AN X-BAND SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS TERMINAL THAT WOULD ALLOW PORTABLE/MOBILE OPERATION AT DATA RATES UP TO 9600 BPS WITH A TERMINAL OF VERY SMALL SIZE. THE ELECTRONICS WOULD BE SMALL ENOUGH TO BE CARRIED ONTO AN AIRLINER, WHILE THE ANTENNA WOULD BE THE SIZE OF A TENNIS BALL FOR MOBILE OPERATION, AND A 12 INCH DIAMETER PARABOLIC DISH ANTENNA FOR PORTABLE OPERATION. THE MOBILE MODE OF OPERATION WOULD INCLUDE A PAGING FEATURE THAT WOULD INFORM THE OPERATOR THAT A HIGH DATA RATE (9600 BPS) LINK IS DESIRED SO THAT THE OPERATOR CAN STOP, SETUP AND POINT THE DISH ANTENNA TO SUPPORT THE HIGHER DATA RATE. SUCH A TERMINAL WOULD APPEAR TO HAVE MANY POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS IN BOTH COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS.
