Satellite Terminal Antennas

IMST characterizes also satellite terminal antennas via pattern and gain measurements as well as G/T measurements. Depending on the size of the aperture, radiation pattern and gain measurements are performed using either the far-field ranges or near- field system. The G/T measurements are done in our anechoic chamber or via using a direct method based on an actual satellite signal. We characterized satellite terminal antennas for many applications, including INMARSAT, Thuraya, VSAT, and Sat-TV reception in L-band, Ku-band and Ka-band.
