Ka-Band Antenna Pointing Mechansim


Surrey is evolving its data downlink capability through the development of an innovative Ka-band APM product. The major product development considerations are:

  • Surrey is working to evolve the existing X-band APM into a Ka-band APM which will support a data throughput up to 1 Gbps.
  • Ka-band APM product development will consider both coaxial and waveguide feeds.
  • Rotary joint design and arrangement is currently being reviewed.
  • It is likely that an in-house Cassegrain reflector will be designed to achieve the required gain.
  • The larger antenna and RF feed can be easily incorporated into the existing mechanism with minor modifications.
  • The proven fundamental mechanism components remain identical to the first-generation X-band APM, made possible through the design’s modular layout and generous design-margins.
