Abstract

Nowadays, ground stations which integrate the control segment of a satellite mission have as a common feature, the use of large reflector antennas for space communication. Apart from many advantages, large dishes pose a number of impairments regarding their mechanical complexity, low flexibility, and high cost. In the user segment, the use of planar arrays to substitute domestic reflectors will provide a more compact and easy to install antenna system and is an interesting solution e.g. for Satellite-On-The-Move (SOTM) systems.
