Abstract:

ABSTRACT: High-speed inter-satellite links (ISLs) are a key feature to improving satellite communications (satcom) bandwidth in support of global military operations. ISLs increase the number of paths in the network which tend to improve aggregate bandwidth, network survivability, and improve the global instantaneous transmission coverage. Along with expanding network ground coverage, ISLs provide saving in ground system operations costs by reducing the number of ground stations and relay points required to maintain a satellite constellation while still providing improved coverage. The SEAKR team will work toward implementing a space-qualified inter-satellite crosslink with vastly improved data rate and reduced integration costs as compared to alternate designs.
