Project Description: 

In this project, led by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, an antenna configuration has been demonstrated in Ka-band that generates multiple beams to provide broadband internet access from geostationary satellites. Current satellites use 4 reflectors to generate a cellular coverage with 2 frequencies and 2 polarizations. With this proof-of-concept, the number of reflectors can be reduced by half.
