Development of On-board Processing and Beam Switching payload for ‘Ku’ and ‘Ka’ band GEO Satellite for High Throughput Maritime Requirements


There is a need to have a Ku/Ka band High Throughput Satellite for maritime requirements. This will require multiple spot beams with terminals operating in different beams, being switched over using on-board processing and beam switching. It is proposed to develop on-board processing and beam switching payload with the following requirements:

  • Programmable, able to be configured / updated / upgraded from ground
  • Requisite security protocols including encryption
  • Compatible with ISRO satellite bus / standards and should be space qualified
  • Protocols for ground terminals including modules to be incorporated in the ground terminals
