The ARTES Competitiveness & Growth element is dedicated to the development, qualification, and demonstration of products such as a piece of equipment, either of the platform or payload of a satellite, a user terminal or a full telecom system integrating a network with its respective space segment.
Low power, low weight electronically steerable Ka band antenna arrays for fixed and mobile satellite terminals using RF MEMS phase shifters. Typical applications are Maritime, trains, UAV’s, mobile, Satellite backhaul.
This development intends to provide a cost efficient solution for applications involving on-board Processing of RF signals or Data Collection, for low bandwidth missions, targeting in particuliar Internet-of-Things (IoT) / low data rate Machine-To-Machine (M2M) communications, but also spectrum survey, geo-location, data collection in general.
THALES ALENIA SPACE IN FRANCE is looking for solutions to improve
its competitiveness in terms of Ka-band equipments, payloads and
satellites. As far as Ka-band output filtering is concerned, use of
Temperature Compensated OMUX is foreseen. This technology leads to
an improvement of the input power limitation, footprint, useful bandwidth
