Contact Lab About This Facility
The purpose of the Ka Band SATCOM test facility is to develop and test ground terminal hardware for Ka band satellite communications, and to support various applications such as protocol testing and video-teleconferencing over the NASA Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS).
The facility comprises a fixed ground station with a 1.8 meter dish, connected via optical fiber to the inside of Building 3. Current activities include the development of a small tracking antenna capability for mobile applications, and the fabrication of more compact terminal hardware for man-portability.
