Paper Abstract

A low-cost high-data-rate network of terrestrial and satellite communications based on GaAs MMIC chips is discussed. GaAs MMICs provide high levels of integration to meet technical requirements for the high-data-rate modulators and demodulators which has the potential of reducing recurring cost and size and improves system reliability. Gigabit data rate necessary for scientific visualization can be easily justified. Satellite communications is expected to provide link connectivity between the researcher and the supercomputer resources.
