Despite some predictions of the total demise of next generation satellite systems, a working Ka-band regenerative satellite system has been built and it is called SPACEWAY TM*. SPACEWAY provides a two-way broadband " Internet in the Sky " IP network over satellite. It utilizes on-board regenerative processing and on-board packet switching with one-hop mesh(More)
Satellite network capacity, adaptability, and responsiveness are enhanced with onboard capabilities for packet switching, bandwidth allocation, and spot-beams which facilitate uplink and downlink spectral reuse. A recent over-the-air (OTA) test of the SPACEWA YM system, a Ka-band regenerative satellite mesh network supporting IP packet services, provides(More)
The achievement of a network-centric battlefield has largely driven the development of satellite communications (SATCOM) on-the-move (SOTM), as a technology solution to facilitate the exchange of rich sources of information amongst geographically-dispersed force elements. While the technical enablers for this concept are rapidly maturing, the operational(More)
