Abstract

In order to achieve lightweight yet low cost antennas for use in a geostationary space environment, the GeReLEO-SMART project develops a substrate-based, multilayer antenna structure which can replace traditional horn antennas as feeds for reflector antennas. To verify a design, an example mission is developed, consisting of a 2×2 patch antenna array with an integrated stripline bandpass filter. The operation frequency is 25.935 GHz. This multilayer antenna will be tested on board of the German technology demonstration mission “Heinrich-Hertz” (H2SAT). The design passed all tests for space qualification without decrease in performance.
