Reliable and efficient communication is vital to space exploration.
New space communication technology and navigation system architectures
are under development to improve current space networks. NASA’s Glenn
Research Center plays a significant role in space communication through
the development of new antenna technology, software defined radio
(SDR), and the Next Generation Deep Space and Near-Earth Space networks.
In support of navigation and communication, Glenn’s Space Communication
Architecture Working Group (SCAWG) is defining future space communication
architectures for all of NASA.
