Status of High Power Technology for Educational Satellites.
Kuhns, Perry W.
The increasing desire to answer the educational needs of all segments of the population will necessitate a broader based communications system such as one based on satellites. The new system will require additional terminals, more interconnections, and more frequencies than are presently in use. To accomplish these goals, we need to use higher transmission power and to develop new spacecraft and ground technologies. As part of the research and development process, this report briefly summarizes the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) findings and suggestions concerning low cost receivers, narrow and shaped transmission beams, high efficiency transmitters, high power solar arrays, information storage and retrieval, and frequencies and sharing.
