Abstract
The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a man-portable S- and C-band communication antenna that can simultaneously track and communicate with multiple nanosatellites in several planes. We propose a low-cost phased array antenna whose particular design could be adapted to a variety of situations with minimal non-recurring engineering. The phased array architecture will be based on EMAG's PCB-native VISAT technology that utilizes vertical integration of radiating and electronics layers to yield the best size, weight and power (SAWP) performance.
