This paper presents the design and performance of a communications payload module equipped with dedicated antennas for K-band, UHF and S-band links, which is envisaged as part of a possible future satellite constellation. The proposed design enables high availability and high capacity digital communication links between the Moon and Earth for a wide range of lunar missions; manned and unmanned, orbiters (including cubesats), landers, sample return vehicles, and includes compatibility to missions such as Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway and Orion.
