The job is dedicated to the development of an active antenna architecture in Ka Band, with important elevation beam steering (+/-70°). The antenna is devoted to SATCOM application, with a partnership between the XLIM laboratory and a French company specialized in the field of SATCOM.
Main tasks :
- Modeling of large antenna array and Beam Forming Networks
- Use of XLIM modeling formalisms for scattering matrix and synthesis process
- Study of technological constraints for the best tradeoff between cost/performances in the context of SATCOM application
- System Level simulation to evaluate the perfomance of the active antenna
Secondary Tasks :
- Involvement in the consortium meetings and deliverables
- publications and conferences
- specialist in antenna array modeling
- Strong skills in RF modeling with CST MWS or equivalent Softwares
- Knowledge of main characteristics of active devices associated to antenna arrays (amplifiers, LNA, non linearities)
- Rigor and autonomy
- Team spirit and good cooperation
XLIM laboratory (http://www.xlim.fr) is a research unit from CNRS and University of Limoges, in France. It is specialized in antenna design within its axis "RF-Systems". The laboratory has more than 440 reseaarchers and teachers (permanent positions or PhD and post-doc).
The Antenna & Signal Team of the RF Systems Axis has strong skills in multielement antenna modeling (arrays, reflectarrays, parasitic element antennas). In this project, the original modeling techniques of the team will be used for active antenna design for SATCOM, where full electronic antennas are still a great challenge.
This work is proposed in the framework of a French ANR collaborative project (ESKALAD)
