Unfurlable, Electronically Steering Antenna for L/P band SAR Payload for Small Satellite


Origami technology is a promising field to innovate various antenna designs. Origami techniques offer many interesting characteristics, including self-foldability, programmable curvature and programmable collapse. Origami technology offers very efficient and low-cost alternatives, enabling flexible and deployable antennas that were previously impossible with conventional antenna fabrication processes. Therefore, as a component of challenge 5, Origami based Unfurlable and Electronically Steered L/P band SAR antenna for a small satellite in LEO is proposed to be developed.
