Abstract
ABSTRACT: Space Micro proposes to mitigate key technology risks to enable development of future satellite communication architectures using W-band (for uplink) and V-band (for downlink). An innovative approach to enable a very wideband modem for W/V band MILSATCOM applications is described and a work plan defined to demonstrate feasibility. Space Micro has defined an approach that will enable very large instantaneous bandwidth communications which will enhance security, propagation and data throughput at W/V band frequencies. In Phase II we will complete design and development of a satellite W/V-band transceiver. BENEFIT: In Phase III we anticipate dual use applications. Military for MILSATCOM systems which would benefit from high capacity satellite uplink / downlink capability at W-band and V-band. In addition, there is growing commercial interest in W-band and V-band for terrestrial wireless communication.
