Integrated Millimeter-Wave (Sub-) Systems for Future Satellite Communications

The advent of Ka-band satellites for broadband mobile communications calls for advanced system architectures, technologies, and designs for both the ground and the satellite segment. In its first part the presentation addresses the particular challenges associated with the realization of compact millimeter-wave terminal antenna systems relying on digital beam forming. The second part deals with the integration and the space qualification of various on-board (sub-)systems using advanced 2.5D (LTCC) packaging technologies.
