A breadboard sync satellite terminal has been developed incorporating a unique concept of a gimballess multi-access transceiver, which is capable of simultaneously communicating with six independent, asynchronous LEO satellites. The developmental hardware illustrates that low power, weight, and volume is achievable compared to multiple independent gimballed transceivers, while also putting a lesser burden of power, size, and weight on the LEO satellite tranceivers that communicate with the multiple-access transceiver.
