A multifunctional device that combines the capabilities of a transmitter and receiver within a single unit, enabling bidirectional communication for satellites and other communication systems. By integrating both functions into a compact and efficient package, transceivers enable the transmission and reception of signals over a wide range of frequencies and communication protocols.

In satellite communication, transceivers play a critical role in facilitating seamless and reliable communication between the satellite and ground-based stations. They serve as the interface between the satellite’s communication subsystem and the external environment, allowing the satellite to both transmit and receive signals to and from Earth.
