Abstract:

Conventional communication satellites, using transponders, can provide high efficiency communications in an unstressed low noise environment between terminals of the same type. However, such satellites are not suitable for providing such capabilities as anti-jam protection or interconnectivity of messages between terminals of different types, both important for military communications purposes. On-board satellite signal processing can provide these and other capabilities. This report discusses on-board processings advantages and costs, and shows how it can be incorporated into a system concept. Author
