NASA-HDBK-4009A, NASA TECHNICAL HANDBOOK: SPACE TELECOMMUNICATIONS RADIO SYSTEM (STRS) ARCHITECTURE STANDARD RATIONALE (14-MAR-2018)., This Handbook is published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a guidance document to provide engineering information; lessons learned; possible options to address technical issues; classification of similar items, materials, or processes; interpretative direction and techniques; and any other type of guidance information that may help the Government or its contractors in the design, construction, selection, management, support, or operation of systems, products, processes, or services.
This Handbook is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers.
This Handbook establishes the key rationale, explanatory material, and additional information to support NASA-STD-4009, Space Telecommunications Radio System (STRS) Architecture Standard. This architecture is a standard for reconfigurable communication transceiver developments among NASA missions.
NASA-STD-4009 strives to provide commonality among NASA radio developments to take full advantage of emerging software-defined radio (SDR) technologies from mission to mission. This architecture serves as an overall framework for the design, development, operation, and upgrade of these software-based radios.
