This notice is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; offers are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
This notice is being issued as a Request for Quotations (RFQ) for 1 each, DVB-S2 Modem.
The Space Communication and Navigation Testbed project requires a ground-based DVB-S2 modem to support experiments with variable and adaptive coding and modulation, applied to spacecraft telemetry and science data. The initial use of the modem will be for signal bandwidths of 5 MHz, but wider bandwidths of 200 MHz are desired for the second phase of the experiment. Operationally, the DVB-S2 modem will be used in a receive-only mode, to receive data from a NASA-provided transmit waveform (space-side). A DVB-S2 test modulator capability for the DVB-S2 modem is desired for loop-backing testing and self-test purposes. The DVB-S2 modem receiver is required to provide the required signal information (MODCOD, Eb/No) to support adaptive coding and modulation. This information will be used by a NASA-provided ground system to send ACM commands to the spacecraft.
