Abstract: One of the most challenging issues facing the Australian Department of Defence is provision of high data rate links to tactical platforms to support future generation command and control, surveillance, intelligence, logistics and administrative networks. Recently, a window of opportunity arose to place a military payload onboard a civilian spacecraft bus. This paper provides an overview of the proposed military payload and some of its potential applications.
