The Space Development Agency (SDA) seeks proposals on their first Request for Proposal (RFP) to help build the Transport layer. Transport Tranche 0 is an interoperable mesh network of tens of satellites to provide periodic low-latency and high-capacity data connectivity. The agency plans to award at least two contracts to build a total of 20 satellites with specific requirements and technical challenges, including low-recurring cost satellite buses, Link 16 and Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) mission payloads, and interoperable crosslinks and networking.
