Pushing the Boundaries of Passive RF Hardware Design
Case Study: Low Profile, Low Mass Metasurface Antennas
In collaboration with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Univ Rennes, CNRS, IETR - UMR 6164, 3D Systems produced several thousand elements of this MTS antenna on a single base plate. Low profile and low mass make this an ideal Ka band antenna type for SmallSats and CubeSats.
