Title:
Development of a Compact KA-Band Antenna Pointing Mechanism for Intersatellite Links on Small Satellites 
Abstract:
The Institute of Astronautics (LRT) at Technische Universität München is currently developing a lightweight, high data-rate, intersatellite-link antenna (LISA) in the Ka-band for application on small satellites. The driving design constraint to the pointing mechanism is a compact envelope of the satellite. For this reason a non-gimbal two-degree-of-freedom pointing design was chosen. Two-low loss Ka-band wave guide rotary joints have to be introduced for the signal transmission from the antenna...    »
