dc.description.abstract This talk briefly describes why there is a performance advantage over X-band and its limitations. The total advantage of a factor of 14.4 or 11.6 db, less the stochastic atmospheric effects can be used in several ways, smaller apertures, reduced RF power, greater data return through higher transmission rates, or shorter DSN track times at those same higher rates. en_US
