Paper Abstract

For several years, NASA has been pursuing demonstrations and development of coherent uplink arraying techniques for the next generation space communications and planetary radar systems. In addition radio science experiments would benefit with a 1000 times increase in signal to noise over current systems. I shall describe the three methods of uplink arraying NASA has pursued, all successful, and share the vision for going forward from laboratory demonstrations to the proposed implementation and deployment of a dedicated multi-purpose facility to infuse an amalgam of these methods into a system that enhances NASA's missions.
