Abstract

IERUS proposes the development of a SATCOM OTM terminal capable of multi-beam operation which will reduce - or eliminate - gaps in communication switchovers during satellite transitions. This proposed system consists of a 3D-printed lens acting as a passive beamformer, reconfigurable array for wideband frequency coverage, and a switched beam steering network. The combination of these subsystems result in a design that is cost-effective while still meeting the performance requirements driven by the operational SATCOM OTM environment.
