Abstract
Topic A08-010 concerns one very important aspect of Aerospace Communications, developing a very sensitive receiver system, but with very low maintenance requirements. Our phase 1 proposal is based on refinement of existing technologies we have developed for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), re-packaged for use by the US Army. We have already built a cryogencially cooled system for spacecraft telemetry, in the frequency range 7 to 15 GHz, and operated this system for 5 years. Our system was developed for high data communication and was highly regarded for reliability.
