This paper documents the use of a "model based design" approach for the design, verification and implementation of the digital equivalent of a tracking and data relay satellite (TDRS) waveform. It is seen that such all-digital baseband implementations of traditional analog architectures are now feasible with current software radio technologies, and thus is likely to transform future space based communication system design/ deployment towards primarily software controlled adaptive platforms.
