ATNF Colloquium
NASA’s Evolving Space Communication and Navigation
Badri Younes (NASA)
Abstract: As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 and its historic landing on the Moon, NASA is preparing to once again send humans deep into space, beyond the confines of low-Earth orbit. NASA’s current plan, the Artemis program, is to get to the Moon by 2024, which will enable us to get to Mars roughly a decade after creating a sustainable presence on the lunar surface. These ambitious lunar and Mars plans will require new communications strategies, and more importantly, new technologies. This presentation will focus on the new technologies that SCaN is working on (wideband modem, Quantum, Optica, etc.) that will be required in preparation for sending humans to the Moon and beyond.
