Project: Photonic Assisted Multibeam Phased Array Antenna

Acronym: PHOAM
Main Objective:
The main objective is to develop a multi-beam antenna, capable of handling Ka-band signals. The antenna shall enable establishing multiple links with different LEO satellites. The antenna comprises two separate phased array antennas, one for Tx and another for Rx. Hybrid beamforming is considered, combining discrete RF beamforming, photonic beamforming, and digital true-time delay beamforming.
