Title: (abstract) AMT Experiment Results
Authors: Abbe, Brian S.

Abstract: The Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS) Mobile Terminal (AMT) experiments have provided a terminal technology testbed for the evaluation of K- and Ka-band mobile satellite communications (satcom). Such a system could prove to be highly beneficial for many different commercial and government mobile satcom users. Combining ACTS' highly concentrated spotbeams with the smaller, higher-gain Ka-band antenna technology results in a system design that can support a much higher throughput capacity than today's commercial configurations. Baseline AMT performance results will be presented. In addition, observations on many of the application-specific experiments will also be provided.
