dc.description.abstract Unique requirements imposed on deep space telecommunications, such as operation at extreme ranges, have historically led to high cost, one-of-a-kind spacecraft telecommunications systems. Yet future deep space misssions must fit within severe cost, mass and power constraints. JPL recently completed a study to find ways of reducing telecommunicaitons cost for future deep space missions. They identified and evaluated alternative telecommunicaitons systems architectures capable of satisfying these needs and design constraints. Future missions are expected to occur more frequently than in the past. The study recommends that a standard deep space transponder be developed. It also recommends spacecraft power amplifier and antenna development efforts. en_US
