Overview

Current trends in the satellite industry are high-throughput satellites and mega-constellations. The enabling technology for both trends are phased array antennas (PAA).

This webinar examines the fundamentals of PAA, upcoming test challenges and how key antenna test parameters for active antennas need to be revised. Attendees will learn how the test solutions by Rohde & Schwarz answer these challenges and how they guide and support you through the different development stages up to antennas in the field as part of terminals.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn current issues in the areas of HTS, mega-constellations and phased antenna arrays
  • Understand key antenna test parameters
  • Learn about different production stages and upcoming test challenges
  • Discover antenna test solutions by Rohde & Schwarz
