Transportable REflectarray Antenna for Satellite Ku-band Emergency Communications –

ESA project on the development of a portable user terminal for provision of high data rates via a GEO satellite.

 

OBJECTIVES

To design and implement a prototype of a novel transmit/receive Ku-band antenna easy to transport without a vehicle and easy to deploy. The antenna design is novel in that it comprises fine electronic pointing capability by means the reconfigurability of PIN-diode controlled elementary cells on the main reflector of a reflectarray. To keep the design cost efficient a reconfigurable elementary cell with 1-bit phase resolution is adopted.
