We’ll breakdown the specific “needs” and “wants” across the various Satellite Phased Array Antenna markets…and reveal how ThinKom is “walking the talk” in meeting those demands, TODAY…and tomorrow. Key design considerations (and trends) relating to profile, power/cooling, efficiency, reliability, scan range, frequency coverage, GSO/NGSO interoperability, and regulatory compliance will be discussed in detail. Applications including Fixed, Mobile, and Aeronautical User Terminals (UT) across Consumer, Enterprise, and Government markets will be described, together with Gateway and Satellite Payload antenna examples.
  • What are the market requirements for phased arrays in the near and longer term?
  • What are current technology trends for phased arrays? What’s on the immediate horizon? What’s next?
  • What are key criteria for evaluating phased-array options for specific applications?
  • What are the price/volume/scalability considerations in addressing large price-sensitive markets? What’s achievable?
