Advanced MMICs for SOTM and satellites constellations

Project description

Novel technology will boost the telecommunications satellites industry

The Earth is circled by an ever-increasing number of diverse satellites serving roles from Earth observation and geopositioning to telecommunications and security. Until recently, most telecommunications and broadcasting satellites were found in so-called geostationary orbits. They circled the globe at about 36 000 km above the surface and remained in a stationary position relative to the Earth as they circled it. Non-geostationary satellites and satellite constellations at lower altitudes are on the rise, making tracking more complicated and telecommunications more challenging. The EU-funded SATELLITE IA project is developing novel beamforming technology for ground antennae to support tracking and enhance the competitiveness of Europe in the booming telecommunications satellites industry.
