Wireless Applique for Integration and Test

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

This project investigates and develops wireless communications technologies as alternatives to traditional cabled data connections between spacecraft subsystems.

This effort has been formulated with two distinct, overarching objectives: (i) Retirement of key risks in the adoption of radio frequency (RF) wireless technologies to spacecraft test and operational environments, (ii) Near-term infusion of techniques, designs and technologies to the spacecraft I&T environment to address the ATLO/GSE harness mass and cable routing complexities.

Three of the primary risks addressed under this effort are: (i) communications link reliability and security, (ii) scalability and (iii) electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
