MIRAD Engineering Design Process

The design of our high quality systems and components is complex. It requires a profound RF engineering experience acquired during a considerable amount of time working with MIRAD on similar projects. 

Take a look at the MIRAD engineering design process below.

Whether you have questions regarding antenna sizes, mechanical antenna stability requirements, or reflector compliance with specific frequency bands, our engineers are happy to provide detailed and precise answers.

We Provide:

  • Antenna geometries for the main- and sub-reflector for new ground stations including reflector deformation analysis
  • Antenna performance simulations (e.g. antenna efficiency, radiation pattern, G/T calculations)
  • Definition of the key antenna parameters of existing antennas as a starting point for the feed system design
  • Feasibility assessment of antenna upgrades 
    (e.g. change of frequency bands)
  • Beam waveguide calculation for large ground stations
Antenna Geometry of a Cassegrain Antenna

High transmission power can create several effects that might distort the RF signals. Our engineers recently concluded in-depth multiphysics analysis and simulation of implications of  high power applications of the complete RF path.

For the design of high power feed systems and feed networks, a special focus is required for the analysis of the following physical effects:

  • Heat dissipation / cooling concepts
  • Risks for voltage breakdown

As a result from this analysis, we are able to deliver reliable high power solutions up to 60 kW or even 100 kW (currently in testing phase) for Deep Space Antennas.

Thermal Filter Analysis

In our in-house anechoic chamber (8m x 6m x 6m), MIRAD tests the antenna characteristics of our own systems and prototypes, as well as third party RF products up to 70 GHz. (contact us to check availability and for a quote). Our measurements are three dimensional and in high resolution. The test procedures are software defined for synchronic VNA and hardware-motion controlling.

Our well equipped inventory of measurement tools (for RF and mechanical validation) allows for the execution of any necessary test procedure, and documenting that our deliverables meet – or in many cases – are even better than the agreed upon specifications.

Factory Acceptance Tests are done via telephone or our testing & validation expertise can be witnessed in person.
