Multiple-beam antenna design for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite application
In recent years, small satellites have become increasingly important for space industries due to the advantages of low mass, fast development, flexibility, and low cost. High-Throughput-Satellites (HTS) are a good candidate to address the data capacity required for future satellite networks. To obtain a practical HTS, multiple- pointed beams are the most important prerequisite. Under this circumstance, coverage on the earth would be in the form of multiple spots, provides the capability of sectorizing or frequency reusing in the system. There are numerous research programs on small satellite research and development worldwide. Antennas are key components that enable small satellites to receive and transmit electromagnetic signals.
