Ground Station Communication Arrays consist up of multiple radio telescopes that are smaller in size than the telescopes of the single-dish approach. These smaller dishes each detect and collect data in the form of radio waves from spacecraft and other astronomical sources, and the signals are combined to get similar sensitivity as the larger dishes. The sensitivity of the array can be increased easily by adding more dishes to the array. This newer design of using several smaller dishes can be more efficient and cost-effective than the large radio telescope approach.
We are currently researching Ground Stations Communication Array designs and technologies to improve and advance communication capabilities for near-earth applications to deep space missions.
