Abstract: The primary motive for large transmit array of parabolic reflectors, also known as Uplink Array, was to explore alternate methods in order to replace the large 70m antennas of Deep Space Network (DSN) such that the core capability for emergency support to a troubled spacecraft in deep space is preserved. Given that the Upllnk Array is a new technology, the focus has always been on its feasibility and phase calibration techniques, which by itself is quite a challenge. It would be interesting to examine, however, what else could be accomplished by the Uplink Array capability other than the emergency support to a troubled spacecraft in deep space. ... The objective of this paper is to discuss a few application senarios and the corresponding operation concepts, such as lunar positioning system, high EIRP uplink and the synergies with solar radar, and high power RF beams.
