RF Microtech developing High Power Multiplexers in the framework of a new ESA contract

on 26 Feb 2019 in News |

RF Microtech has been awarded a new ESA ARTES AT project entitled DOMUK – Dielectric-loaded high-power Output de-MUltiplexer at Ku/Ka-band. The project goal is the development of 250 W-class, Ku-band and Ka-band two-channel output de-multiplexers with 240-250 MHz channel bandwidth and 30% footprint reduction with respect to the state of the art. Engineering Models (EM) will be designed, manufactured and tested in relevant environment. RF Microtech is the project main proponent and prime contractor, confirming again its highly professional predisposition for innovative component developing in the space field.

RF Microtech at ESA SatCom Final Presentation Days

on 25 Jan 2019 in News |

RF Microtech has successfully concluded two ESA ARTES projects, namely Mignon – Microwave Micromachining Filters and COMFIL- Compact C/Ku Broadband Waveguide Filters,which will be presented at the ESA SatCom Final Presentation Days Based on different technologies, the two projects led to the creation of highly innovative miniaturized filters for space on-board applications. The MIGNON Filters have been produced in Ka-band by combining multilayer and micromachining technologies. Besides being SMT  (Surface Mount Technology) compatible, such filters have the advantages of having a light mass and a very small footprint. In the framework of COMFIL project, novel filters in C- and Ku-bands have been developed, based on the combination of TM dual mode resonators and combline resonators in waveguide technology. This approach ensures low loss, high compactness and wide spurious-free stop-bands. Both presentations will be given on Wednesday 30th January 2019 in ESA/ESTEC....

H2020 SME Instrument: SPACEFIT project approved

on 19 Feb 2015 in News |

RF Microtech’s project SPACEFIT (SPAce-CompatiblE- Filters_in_dIelectric waveguide Technology) has been approved by EU Commission for the Phase 1 of H2020 Research for SME Programme, SPACE topic. As an outcome of this project, RF Microtech will be able to introduce into the space market miniaturized and low-mass RF filters and multiplexers in L/S bands based on dielectric waveguide resonators. The proposed technology will lead to a drastic reduction of the resonator dimensions and weight (up to 50%) and cost (up to 20%) while maintaining high performances. The devices find application as input or output filters in several satellite mobile communications systems and space programs, such as Galileo, Globalstar and Iridium...
