Project Description

NASA Commercial SatCom User Terminal
The focus of this proposal is to assess the feasibility of developing a Commercial Satellite Communications Services (CSCS) , and identify design parameters for a CSCS User Terminals (CSCSUT) that can be manufactured by any number of commercial space communications equipment vendors. We propose to purchase representative CSCS ground-based terminals, analyze their design and operation, to learn about the current state of operations. The innovation of the approach resides in our goal to create a CSCSUT that is interoperational with multiple CSCS providers' systems, that when flown on a NASA spacecraft, enable that spacecraft to relay its command, telemetry, and science data through a CSCS Provider and off-load the SN.
