The High Data-Rate Transmitter (T-748) is a software-defined radio that provides several design enhancements including: advanced high-speed digital signal processing, integrated forward error correction and AES-256 encryption and digital modulation and filtering techniques. With firmware reconfigurable to support CCSDS, DVB-S2, or proprietary formats, the T-748 can be made to interoperate with any ground station. The design is inherently flexible to support X- or Ka-Band frequencies (factory configurable).
Designed from the ground up via a traditional EEE Level 2 parts and material program, the T-748 adapts the latest technologies within our proven parts and design methods resulting in 100 percent on-orbit reliability. When paired with our high efficiency Gallium Nitride (GaN) solid-state power amplifier (SSPA), the combined platform provides a robust, high-rate connection to Earth from any platform or orbit.
