The DAta and Video Interactive Distribution (DAVID) mission belongs to the Small Missions for Science and Technology Programme of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and is aimed at pioneering the use of the W-band channel for telecommunications experiments. Furthermore, it envisages the test of a novel technique, for an optimal sharing of the satellite resources, among a grid of Earth terminals, that could be usefully exploited in future W-band operational systems.
