Design of ground station antenna for a double CubeSat student project
MetadataShow full item record
Give an introduction to the proposed double CubeSat system and an overview of communication requirements and the propagation characteristics that influence the link budget. Based on the above findings, derive requirements for the ground station antenna. Emphasize simplicity and easy construction and propose an antenna system that may meet the requirements. Investigate it theoretically with available software to optimize its dimensions. A scale model of the antenna should finally be built and its main properties measured in an anechoic chamber.
