Demonstrable Technology
January 4, 2014

Demonstrable technologies have proven themselves in laboratory tests and have begun experimentation and testing in space. These technologies are considered to be Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7 and above.

Some of the demonstrable technologies that SCaN is currently working on are:

Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN)
Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) is developing a set of international standards, collectively referred to as Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) standards, to support internetworking in space.
Optical Communication
Optical communication is a form of long distance communication that uses light as a means of transmitting information.
SCaN Testbed
Software Defined Radio (SDR)
The first radio was invented late in the nineteenth century following several decades of improved understanding of the physics of electromagnetism.
