Compact and efficient antenna architectures are key enabler solutions for on-board electromagnetic applications (telecommunications, radars, electronic warfare, etc.). Current solutions use cumbersome mechanical systems, or expensive but flat electronically steered phased arrays.
High data rates require the large bandwidth available at Ka-band but also extremely flat and steerable antennas to be integrated on the fuselage of moving platforms. The main technical and scientific challenge of the project is the development of a very low profile antenna architecture able to steer in a fast and efficient way its main beam over a large angular sector and wide band.
The main goal of the project is to develop a disruptive, modular and ultra-low-profile antenna architecture for the next generation of high data rate satellite communication systems for moving platforms.
