Advanced communications technologies in support of NASA mission



Felix MirandaDr Félix A Miranda is the Deputy Chief of the Communications and Intelligent Systems Division at NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland Ohio. His areas of expertise are antenna technology and microwave integrated circuits/devices for space and ground-based communications.

He is a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the AIAA, a member of the APS and a member of FIAP. Dr Miranda has authored or co-authored more than 200 technical publications, several book chapters, co-edited several conference proceedings on ferroelectric materials and devices, and is co-editor of the book Advanced Nanomaterials for Aerospace Applications, (Pan Stanford Publishing, 2014). He holds 13 US patents.

Dr Miranda is a former NASA Administrator’s Fellow, is the recipient of the 2007 NASA Exceptional Service Medal for outstanding technical and managerial leadership in antenna and microwave technologies for space communications, and have received three R&D100 awards for the development of novel antenna technologies.


NASA is currently working in expanding communications capabilities to enhance and enable robotic as well as human exploration of space and to advance aero communications on Earth. This presentation will discuss some of the research and technology developments being performed at the NASA Glenn Research Center in aerospace communications in support of NASA’s mission.

An overview of the work conducted in-house and in collaboration with other NASA Centers, Industry, Academia and Other Government Agencies (OGA) to advance radiofrequency (RF) and optical communication technologies in the areas of antennas, power amplifiers, receivers, and cognitive communications systems, among others will be presented. The roles of these and other RF and optical communication technologies in enabling NASA next generation aerospace communications architecture will be also discussed.
