Analysed three-antennas design
This development program has some interesting and challenging aspects:
To find an innovative design able to be adapted to several configurations through non dramatic changes in the structure.
The most remarkable benefits of the current design are highlighted below:
Generation of an industrial dossier to be used systematically for all the products as basic design dossier.
The Modular Top Floor Antenna Assembly provides a common support for an increasing number of antennas (including reflectors, feeders and sub-reflectors).
The main supporting structure is made by the following sub-assemblies:
This design is an important step forward on the ECE Top Floor Antennas experience. However, the main material and processes technologies proposed for this design are based in the ECE heritage with the carbon fibre structures.
The full development is split in two phases:
Phase I has been closed by the middle of July 2013. This one is corresponding with Preliminary Design Review Level, but with an advanced stage for both design and analysis. So these results may be considered very confident and according with a mature product.
A demonstrator covering the lower stage of the structure has been manufactured and tested.
