Recurve is small satellite built by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) demonstrating adaptive radio frequency system capability from Low Earth Orbit, evaluating mesh network behavior across multiple nodes to route data wherever it needs to go.
Through the Recurve system - designed, built, and operated entirely in house - AFRL expects to demonstrate radio frequency system interoperability and capability for future military applications.
