Abstract : The Satellite Data Transmission System is a oneway satellite to earth data link which uses an adaptive satellite phased array to obtain a large antenna gain, thereby allowing a reduction in the vehicular power requirement. The adaptive property of the array allows the realization of a high gain communication beam without requiringACCURATE VEHICLE STABILIZATION OR THE ACQUISITION AND TRACKING CIRCUITRY NORMALLY ASSOCIATED WITH NARROW BEAM ANTENNAS. The analysis is divided into three main sections: phased array, tunnel diode amplifiers, and tunnel diode mixers. These are the three major components in the system. In each section, the design activities and experimental results which have been obtained are given. (Author)
