“Surface Mountable Filters for Frequency Converters” –

ESA project for the assessment of compact L and C band filters to be easily integrated in frequency converter equipment (ESA Artes Advanced Technology, ITT AO8882)

 

OBJECTIVES

The project first goal is to identify the most suited technology and develop surface mountable filters at L-band and at C-band for space applications. The targeted improvement is a highly integrated Ku- or Ka-band to IF converters with up to 20% mass and footprint saving with respect to the state of the art.
