Deployable high gain antenna structure for small spacecraft science mission

Other European projects
June 1, 2020 - March 31, 2021

NCSR budget: 90,000€

The aim of the project is to develop a reliable, deployable reflector antenna that operates in the X-band (8-12GHz), including the support structure and antenna feed. The antenna is intended to meet the communication needs of interplanetary scientific missions with small spacecraft platforms. The project will run in two phases; Phase-1 will cover the design and critical Breadboarding until the Preliminary Design, while Phase-2 will cover the Detailed Design and all Manufacturing, Assembly, Integration and Testing to bring the system to TRL7.
