Objective: The objective of this activity is to develop cost-effective high gain antennas for inter-satellite links between cubesats.
Targeted Improvements: 1. Increased gain compared to the already proposed Bulls Eye Medium Gain antenna (>10 dB)2. Increased compactness compared to other 60 GHz high gain antennas (HGA)Using the described manufacturing technologies a mass reduction of 50% can be expected. It should be noted that for 6...
The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test a side-deployable reflector with metal mesh as the reflective surface and a solid backing structure.
Targeted Improvements:Lightweight antenna reflectors with a significant mass reduction of 25% when compared to state-of-the-art reflectors, a shaping capability, very low reflective loss and low acoustic load sensitivity.
Description:Current state-of-art side-deploya...
The objective of this activity is to design, develop and test a large Ka-band reflector antenna concept (1 m to 3 m, scalable up to5 m) for small satellites(50 to 150Kg) in low earth orbit. Large offset reflector concepts with a low stowage ratio (less than 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm) shall be studied and tradedoff. A demonstrator shall be designed, manufactured and tested.
Targeted Improvements:Enabling European independence with respect to...
The objective of this activity is to design, manufacture and test compact broadband input filters at C-band and at Ku-band based ondielectric materials.Advanced manufacturing processes shall be employed for the engineering models to reduce the number of piece parts.
Targeted Improvements:Footprint reduction of C-band and Ku-band input filters by 50% whilst maintaining all electrical performance parameters in comparison to the currentsta...
The objective of the activity is to develop and validate an end-to-end performance simulator for flexible very high throughput satellites embarking activeantennas and digital processors. The simulator will assess the payload performance in the far field with real signal excitation and it will focus on thepayload architectural and functional performance.
Targeted Improvements:Enabling simulator to support the design, performance assessme...
The objective of this activity is to design, develop and test a lightweight millimetre-wave antenna reflector with minimal or no sensitivity to acousticloading. The reflector shall be scalable to diameters of up to 3 metres and be compatible with Ka- to W-band operation.
Targeted Improvements:Reduction of mass per reflector area by a factor of 2.
Description: Next-generation telecommunication satellites such as Very-High-Throughp...
The objective of this activity is to develop fast testing techniques for on-board antennas to locate radiated and conducted sourcesof Passive Inter-Modulation (PIM) products. Validation of the PIM location technique shall be performed on representative hardware.
Targeted Improvements: Enabling fast identification of the locations of PIM sources in assembled antennas during satellite assembly, integration and test (AIT). Potential time s...
The objective of this activity is to design and to develop a high voltage power transformer in planar technology for Electronic Power Conditioning Units(EPC) used to drive travelling wave tubes. The aim is to develop a novel transformer design solution not existing today in Europe for up to 8kV class ofEPCs. This will enable the next generation of compact EPCs. A transformer engineering model shall be designed, manufactured and tested to valid...
The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test a prototype of a wideband multiport (at least 16 input ports) power combiner for ground terminals operating over multiple frequency bands (C, X, Ku and Ka).
Targeted Improvements:- Enabling the use of multiport amplifiers deploying single wideband HPAs (20W combined output power) and graceful degradation in comparison to today's state of the art multiplexed solution with H...
