dc.description.abstract The Galileo mission to Jupiter has implemented a wide range of telecommunication improvements in response to the loss of it's high gain antenna. Among the communications enhancements that have been made are the use of advanced compression techniques, packetized telemetry, new error correcting codes and algorithms, more efficient modulation, variable transmission data rates, routine ground antenna arraying (even between continents,) extremely sensitive ground receivers, and non-real-time automated data reconstruction. This telecommunications legacy of Galileo will aid in our abillity to conduct a meaningful exploration of the solar system, and beyond, at a reasonable cost. en_US
