Anteral will show latest results on Advanced Techniques of Feed Horn Antenna Designs for Communication Satellites. at “Equipment and Antennas for Satellite Communication” workshop during the next European Microwave Week in Nuremberg (Sunday, 8th october). Our Antennas CTO Aitor Martinez will be in charge of the talk. Don’t forget to register for both the conference and this workshop. After the Workshop Aitor will be happy to have a nice chat with all of you.
About the workshop:
The continuously increasing need for capacity and flexibility results in a wide range of new developments for satellite communication. Components and equipment for higher frequencies, for example Q- and V-band have been developed as higher frequency bands provide a wider bandwidth and so data capacity can be increased. Additionally to RF performance, mass and cost are of increasing importance. Therefore also new manufacturing methods for cheap and lightweight waveguide components and antennas are required. Power handling and thermal aspects have to be considered, too. The equipment must be safe against multipaction and corona, but in space also the dissipation power is a challenging task. To minimize the dissipation power, amplifiers with a high efficiency are needed.
