New Antennas and Propagation Study Results Reported from C. Menudier et al
2012 AUG 8 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Telecommunications Weekly -- Current study results on Antennas and Propagation have been published. According to news reporting originating in Toulouse, France, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A reconfigurable sub-reflectarray (RSRA) is studied to perform a realistic telecommunication scenario in Ku-band. The reflectarray panel is based on a proven technology with PIN diodes developed by Thales Airborne Systems and French Space Agency."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "This article presents different geometries of dual-reflector that can be used with this RSRA and the performances are compared, including quantization effects. It also presents that the main difficulty to tackle with RSRA is the alteration of the radiation patterns due to the specular radiation of the panel."
According to the news reporters, the researchers concluded: "Finally, two solutions to minimize this effect with RSRA are presented."
