Abstract

The GEODA-GRUA is one conformal adaptive antenna array designed for satellite communications. Operating at 1.7 GHz with circular polarization, it is possible to track and communicate with several satellites at once being able to receive signals in full azimuth and within the range of 5° to broadside elevation thanks to its adaptive beam. The complex structure of the antenna array has 2700 radiating elements based on a set of 60 similar triangular arrays that are divided in 15 subarrays of 3 radiating elements. A control module governs each transmission/receiver (T/R) module associated to each cell in order to manage beam steering by shifting phases.
