All aspects of the link are discussed including the choice of modulation, filtering techniques, high speed data processing, power supplies and the initial results. The terminals of the link, which is fully duplex, are solid-state modules each having a volume of about 0.027 cubic metres 1 cubic foot and weighing only some 12 kg 27 lbs this makes the link highly portable.
