POLAR is an industrial project funded by Thales Alenia Space, France. It concerns the development of techniques for the cancellation of the cross-polarization of dual reflectarray antennas for telecom satellite applications. In particular, CTTC will study recfectarray unit cell topologies that will allow the application of a cross-polarization cancellation method developed by Thales Alenia Space in the framework of an ESA ARTES 5 study.
