Nesta Quinta-feira, dia 3 de setembro às 09h, haverá a palestra intitulada: “High Performance Horn Antennas”, organizada pelo Capítulo IEEE APS da Seção Nordeste – Capítulo Estudantil APS UFCG.
This presentation has the main purpose of summarizing the design techniques of the new technology corrugated horn antenna developed since 1995 in the Antenna Group of the Public University of Navarra.
This type of world-wide accepted antennas, known as corrugated Gaussian Profiled Horn Antennas, (GPHA’s); are now-a-days the best possible solution to obtain radiation patterns of very high restrictive requirements.
Corrugated GPHA’s are better than the rest of corrugated horn antennas in two particular aspects:
- They present much lower sidelobes than any other corrugated profile
- They are usually shorter than the rest of corrugated profiles because their performance qualities are superior.
Therefore, these antennas are usually the preferred choice of many research groups around the world to develop corrugated horns for their research projects.
Antennas of this type are at present on board of Hispasat 1C/1D/1E and ASTRA 3B and also used in the ESA’s Planck satellite and now-a-days a new version of a corrugated GPHA is being commercialized by the British company Flann Microwave, Ltd.
