The Project had the aim to investigate how the application of metamaterial concept, and more specifically the metasurfaces, thanks to their inherent greater technological simplicity with respect to the 3D counterpart of artificial materials, can improve the performance, reduce the mass and dimension, and simplify the manufacturing of horn antennas, in their different applications in space field (single feeds, cluster feeds, global horns etc).
The capabilities and the advantages of the product derive from the use of metasurface to realize the required impedance boundary conditions.
The system developed in the project to demonstrate the capabilities of the investigated technology is composed by four parts:
Concurrent design tool update
Concept evaluation and evolution
