Title: Analysis and Design of Lightweight, High-Efficiency, and Circularly Polarized Antennas for Satellite Platforms
Abstract: In this report, a lightweight and efficient circularly polarized all metal antenna design method suitable for satellite industrial applications is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a rectangular waveguide, which includes a high-order mode cavity, a feed, a high-order mode cavity, and a metasurface circular polarizer (MCP). The cavity higher-order mode TE440 is directly emitted from four coupling slots in the waveguide. MCP is placed on the cavity to generate circularly polarized (CP) radiation. Due to the introduction of high-order mode technology and MCP, all metal walls inside the antenna can be removed, significantly reducing weight. In order to reflect the weight advantage, traditional metal wall loaded waveguide antennas with the same size were designed. The test results indicate that the antenna has a wider impedance and axial bandwidth, as well as higher radiation efficiency. Especially, the proposed antenna is 40% lighter than the comparative antenna, indicating that it is more suitable for satellite platforms with limited payload capacity.
