AbstractShaped omni and modular array antenna concepts are being baselined for use on operations with the NASA Space Network and the High Resolution Solar Observatory (HRSO) Satellite Free Flyer Concept. This mission requires 16 MBPS return links, 1 KBPS multiple access links, and a completely redundant set of gimballed antennas to support these links with 90% continuous coverage from TDRSS (Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System). This presentation will discuss in detail how the flexibility of these components enabled mission planners to tradeoff spacecraft options without sacrificing mission objectives.
