The Advanced SATCOM Systems and Operations Group is involved in a synergistic combination of research, proof-of-concept test beds, and system engineering and application efforts focused on the goals of enhancing the capacity, the robustness to interference, and the flexibility of future generations of communications satellites, as well as line-of-sight radio communications systems and free-space optical communications. Current research is concentrating on the design and performance of advanced waveforms (including higher-order signaling constellations and iterative demodulation/decoding), the construction of flexible, adaptive wideband frequency plans, robust acquisition and tracking techniques, dynamic resource-allocation protocols, and advanced networking strategies. Promising research results are verified in hardware and software proof-of-concept implementations that provide quantitative performance data as well as complexity information. The group's system engineering activities synthesize innovative architectures and apply new concepts and technologies to specific communications programs in the national interest.
