Exploring the next generation Deep Space Network


As the current 70-meter antennas are quite old (28-35 years) it is necessary to consider replacing these antennas in the near term as well as providing a capability beyond 70-meters in the future. A study was conducted that investigated the remaining service life of the existing antennas and considered alternatives for eventual replacement of the 70 m-subnet capability. This paper examines several of the concepts considered and explores some of the options for the next generation Deep Space Network.
