AbstractThe Ku-Band subsystem for NASA’s Space Shuttle Orbiter is a combined radar and communications system that provides either radar-aided rendezvous capability or high-rate two-way communications via a synchronous-orbit TDRS relay satellite. This paper describes the architecture of the Ku-Band system and focuses on several unique aspects of the design. Communication capabilities are described in detail.
