Abstract
"The subject design effort will attempt to utilize current technology to produce a feed or feeds capable of operation in the following satellite bands, X-band, Ku-Band, K-band, Ka-band and Q-band. The effort will leverage off past designs to package thefeeds to meet the physical constraints of the subject antenna. The new feed designs will be able to utilize the existing antenna reflector and antenna structure and will be a direct replacement for the existing antenna feeds. The benefits of the researchwill be multiband feeds that are packaged in a way that minimizes the physical size. This would open up the possibility of varied commercial applications as more satellites are launched containing multiple frequency bands. This research is directlyapplicable to many applications requiring reduced size."
