S-/X-/K-Band Feed

New antenna system for the German space center (DLR) ground station in Neustreliz for the reception of data from remote sensing satellites (LEO and GEO).

Key technical challenges:

  • Lowest possible losses
  • Compact feed horn design due to applied coaxial concept
  • Machined split block design
  • Coaxial S-band tracking
  • Highly integrated design
  • Combination of three frequency bands

Key functionalities:

  • Multi-band application (S-Tx / S-Rx / X-Rx / K-Rx)
  • Triple monopulse tracking operation in S- / X- and K-band
