(U) The Satellite Communications' goal is to identify, develop, and transition affordable, high data rate technologies. This is achievable by leveraging high efficiency, lightweight component and signal processing technology (DoD & commercial) to reduce the weight, volume and power requirements of space communication systems by more than half, making highly mobile and transportable services available to tactical forces feasible and helping provide affordable C3 capability for worldwide theater operations.
