NASA's Space Communications and Networking (SCaN) Testbed
The Space Communications and Networking (SCaN) Testbed (STB) is a flight and ground system designed and built at NASA's Glenn Research Center. As its name suggests, the SCaN Testbed is a technical and programmatic advancement of communications technology that will pave the way for future space-communication architectures. It consists of reconfigurable software-defined radios that give mission planners the ability to change radio functionality while on orbit.
