How can high-gain antennas be designed for small Cubesat system?
What will be your role?
Reflectarrays mimic the curved reflector with flat panels filled with multiple passive radiating elements, allowing to realize a high gain antenna systems, more suitable to be folded and integrated in a small cubesat platform.
The main goal of this project is to study a foldable reflectarray solution in terms of radiating element and quasi-optical system, in order to minimize the losses and therefore maximizing the gain.
The Department of Radar Technology is a passionate and creative group of professionals (60 people) dedicated to the specification, development and evaluation of innovative, high-performance MMICs, miniaturised and integrated RF subsystems, antennas and front-ends. The department is at the heart of novel, game-changing radar system and signal processing concepts for the military, space and civil domains.
