The goal of the project was the development and qualification of an innovative high-power Ku-band feed chain at EQM level.
The feed chain shall keep the modular interface philosophy to allow for individual adaptation to specific customer requirements.
Qualified design of a high performance feed chain with extreme high cross-polar discrimination, low return loss and high port-to-port isolation over an increased frequency range for high RF power applications.
The EQM feed chain consists of a corrugated horn, a transition from circular to square waveguide, an Ortho-mode Transducer (OMT), feed brackets and a thermal radiator. The following major requirements shall be fulfilled:
Development and qualification of an EQM High-Power Antenna Feed System covering the full operational Ku Band (FSS) with high interface flexibility (el. & mech.) for implementation into a dedicated antenna as complete feed chain or at component level.
