Abstract

This paper is aimed to explain the radiation test in temperature performed on the radiofrequency assembly (RFA) of the Medium Gain Antenna (MGA) of ESA BepiColombo mission. The goal of this mission is to observe and study Mercury and its surroundings in a very demanding and stringent environment in terms of temperature and radiation. The paper presents the measurement set-up for the qualification campaign of the antenna, where it was necessary to characterize the antenna in a representative thermal environment.
