  • 30GHz Dielectric Channel Filter

    30GHz Dielectric Channel Filter with small mass and footprint were developed and tested. This was performed by the correlation of full wave simulation to the test data from suitable designed hardware. A 10 pole filter with coaxial interface was developed and a 3-channel multiplexer was developed.The test campaign for both units was successfully...

  • Broadband and Compact Ku-Band Global Horns
