AbstractAn operational concept for how a Demand Access Multiple Assignment (DAMA) system could be configured for the NASA Space network is examined. Unique aspects of this concept definition are the use of the Multiple Access system within the Space Network to define an order wire channel that continuously scans the Low Earth Orbit space for potential users and the use of advanced digital signal processing technology to look for the Doppler-shifted carrier signal from the requesting satellite. After the reception of the signal, validation and processing of the request is completed. This paper outlines the concept and the ways in which the system could work.
