DATA RELAY SATELLITE
NASDA is planning a number of technology experiments as part of the
ETS-VI and the COMETS project for data relay satellite applications.
These experiments consist of the following:
- Ka-band (23/26 GHz) and S-band (2.3/2.0 GHz) ISLs on the ETS-VI for
communications between GEO and LEO satellites.
- Combined S- and Ka-band ISLs on COMETS where signals received at
S-band from one satellite will be relayed to other satellites at
