Abstract:

This Study Report describes the technological limitations for performing on board signal processing in MILSATCOM satellites. The operational use of this hardware is for the post 1990 time frame and for the UHF, SHF and EHF bands. The study investigates the limitations imposed by frequency of use, feasible bandwidths, processing gains, chip rates, baseband processing rates and weightvolumemission reliability. author
