POLAR 2 - Advanced unit cell design for cross-polarization cancellation in satellite reflectarrays

POLAR
Start: 01 April 2012
End: 31 October 2012
Funding: Industry
Status: Due

Department: Array and Multi-Sensor Processing (A&MSP)

POLAR 2 is the continuation of POLAR project. It is an industrial project funded by Thales Alenia Space (France). It is devoted to the design of new reflectarray unit cell topologies, which should be able to overcome the limitations of the ones studied in POLAR. They will be used in the implementation of a cross-polarization cancellation method developed by Thales Alenia Space in the framework of an ESA ARTES 5 study.
