The burgeoning market of Earth Observation constellations is a marvel of modern technology, but it faces a significant bottleneck—data downlink.
Are Ka-band active antennas the solution or mere flights of fancy? Join us for an enlightening webinar where we dive deep into the capabilities, limitations, and future potential of X VS Ka-band antennas in the realm of Earth Observation.
What You’ll Learn:
- The Challenges: Understand how the growing demand for quasi real-time data and the rapid increase of satellites in Earth Observation constellations are impacting data downlink capabilities.
- The Alternatives: Learn about the types of antennas currently used for payload telemetry, ranging from isoflux / hemispherical radiation pattern antennas to fixed or steered beam directive antennas, and their pros and cons.
- X vs Ka-Band Unleashed: Gain insights into how Ka-band active antennas, specifically active phased arrays, could offer a low-profile yet effective solution to the data downlink challenge.
- Practical Realities: Anywaves will showcase its current and future antenna solutions, discussing whether Ka-band active antennas are a market-ready solution or still in the realm of science fiction.
