New NASA Near Earth Objects Characterization Effort

NASA GSFC Solicitation: High Power Uplink (Near Earth Objects Characterization)

"NASA/HQ has a requirement to provide high resolution, high power uplink capability at Ka-band for the use in characterizing Near Earth Objects (NEOs), orbital debris, and to fill knowledge gaps in space situational awareness. In fiscal year 2012 NASA will begin to build on its three element interferometer testbed consisting of 12m dishes to demonstrate: 1) uplink arraying with real time characterization and correction of atmospheric turbulence, 2) significant power and gain increases enabling high resolution object imaging and 3) real-time continual system phase control eliminating the need for costly, highly stable components."
