SATCOM Wideband Digital Channelizer
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
ABSTRACT: Recent demand for broadband satellite communications (SATCOM) has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical SATCOM, such as WGS, require increasingly broadband information contents such as high resolution surveillance images and videos, while on the other hand, civilian applications require high definition multimedia broadcasting, and high-speed internet access. Such applications impose on the underlying communication system support for variable data rates ranging from a few Mbps to 100's Mbps for different channels which can vary in bandwidth. The proposed SATCOM wideband digital channelizer enables a SATCOM terminal to simultaneously receive multiple channels of configurable bandwidth, up to an aggregate bandwidth of 500MHz. BENEFIT: The proposed L-band digital channelizer enables low-cost and low power implementation of TV set-top boxes for both SATCOM as well as terrestrial based systems, whereby simultaneous reception of multiple TV channels is highly desirable for the commercial market.
