Aperture antennas as mobile satellite terminals
Antennas are essential part of communication links. This project is investigating antennas for communication between a mobile terminal on earth to a satellite. The mobile terminal could be a flying craft or a vehicle in motion. These antennas should be able to transmit and receive data simultaneously in different channels. Besides, they should be capable of scanning the space to find the target satellite. Single channel antennas or antennas with mechanical tracking have been tested for this purpose and are available in market. But, this project is investigating a single antenna of dual channels with simpler structure, lower profile, lower fabrication cost and specifically electronic tracking. Electronic tracking is much faster and more reliable than mechanical tracking by step motors which are bulky. These antennas are highly in demand in market. Hence, TRTech can benefit from commercialization of this product.
