Direct Radiating Array Antenna


Satellite applications with Ka-band allocated services are now a reality and bring with them a number of advantages such as high directivity with reduced size, high throughput, and high resolution. However, the significant signal attenuation at these frequencies dictates that the antenna instruments on board the satellite must be able to handle high levels of electrical power to establish a robust communication link. Faced with these challenges, Anywaves' team of specialized engineers worked on an innovative antenna concept that enables it to withstand high power handling and a harsh space environment, while still presenting an excellent form factor and high quality standards.

Anywaves' direct radiating array product line is fully scalable and thus tailorable to the needs of your satellite mission to meet  gain specifications. More in details, our solution features a fixed right- or left-handed circularly polarized beam with first side-lobe levels of about 15 dB all over fractional bandwidths in the order of 10%. A space qualified white paint is also applied atop the radome to protect the antenna structure from disruptive phenomena such as electrostatic discharge. With its electromagnetic performance and ultra-low profile, this product is an attractive solution for applications such as Ka band payload telemetry and inter-satellite links as it can provide your system with a reliable and elegant solution.

According to Anywaves' product assurance policy, the antenna undergo a rigorous qualification campaign that includes mechanical vibration and vacuum thermal cycling, power-handling testing, etc. Acceptance tests are also performed on flight models and customized according to the customer's specific requirements.

Please note that our Direct Radiating Array Antennas are not a COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) product. They are custom-made upond demand, hence why we do not have a generic datasheet to provide.
