The Wideband InterNetworking engineering test and Demonstration Satellite (WINDS) was developed for the research of high-data-rate satellite communication technologies using Ka-band. WINDS was launched on February 23, 2008 and completed its operation on February 27, 2019. The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) planned and conducted various experiments, such as satellite communication experiments for disaster countermeasures, an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing transmission experiment, and mobile satellite communication experiments, using a small vehicle earth station, an airborne earth station, and a seaborne earth station.
