Webinar on Satellite Communications Systems

#Satellite #Communication #Webinar #NASA



Before 1970, all NASA’s mission communication was just possible through their ground systems while passing overhead of the communications network’s ground station antennas, and it was limited connectivity.

In early 1970, NASA established a space network (SN) communication to reduce its dependency on the ground stations. NASA’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) have provided critical communication and navigation services to NASA’s mission as part of the SN since then. Increases in the number of tasks, higher data rates and the need for constant communication with NASA’s human and science mission determined NASA to increase the capacity for the space network. The commercial space industry’s growth provides NASA with the vast opportunity to access the applicability of the commercial space relay communication systems.

In this webinar, the NASA space network and, more specifically, the TDRS system will be discussed, then the commercial space industry and the possibility of utilizing the commercial relay systems as well as the gains and challenges will be elaborated.
