• 20/30 GHz Satellite Systems Technology Needs Assessment

      Stevens, Grady; Wright, David; National Aeronautics and Space Administration (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1978-11)
      NASA is involved in exploring the potential of the 20/30 GHz bands as evidenced by the propagation work in the ATS series by NASA-Goddard and, more recently, by the systems and market effort by NASA-Lewis. This paper focuses on the system and market work done by NASA-Lewis. Included are results of previous contractual and in-house studies, as well as preliminary results of on-going market and system studies. Baseline concepts for evaluating technology needs are also included.
