Adaptive META Antennas for New Space Applications such as IoT, 5G, HTS, GNSS, etc.
Space communications will offer certainty of high throughput quality of digital services across the globe, way above what could ever be achieved using existing terrestrial links. Thus, there are multiple of new applications on the horizon. However, still antennas integration on different space platforms are a big challenge, especially when SWP&C (Size, Weight and Power and Cost) restrictions are increasing and platforms available size is reducing. This talk will provide an introduction to new type of Adaptive META antennas. Compared to conventional half wavelength antennas these offer better performance and are thinner. Therefore offers the potential of 'extreme ease of antenna systems integration with low costing'. Some field examples of adaptive reconfigurable META antennas with their markets will also be presented.
Dr Amit Mehta is the director of 5G and Adaptive Antennas at Swansea University, UK. He has delivered a number of innovative solutions to tier 1 space suppliers, for applications of high throughput, wide bandwidth and wide scanning, miniaturized and low cost anti jam antenna systems. Some of his project prime funders include UK Ministry of Defence, Fujitsu UK, Airbus UK – Germany, European Space Agency, MBDA, Satellite Catapult, etc. He has over 10 patents & design rights and over 100 international publications. He is a senior member of IEEE.
