POLAR 3 is the third phase of POLAR project series (POLAR , POLAR2 ). It is an industrial project funded by Thales Alenia Space (France). Its main objective is the design of a software routine for the automatic synthesis of reflectarray unit cells presenting any given s-parameters matrix. This software routine will enable the synthesis of reflectarrays with quasi-null cross-polarization following the method developed by Thales Alenia Space in the framework of an ESA ARTES 5 study.
