Phase 2

/ Mission Continued /

For the second phase, IEEE MTT-Sat Challenge called for proof of concepts. The following ideas are pursued within Phase II of the IEEE MTT-Sat Challenge (in alphabetical order):

  • A Ka-Band Satellite Active Phased-Array Transceiver on Deployable Textile Membranes Enabling Calibration for Mechanical Deformations by Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan
  • Additive Manufacturing of Small Satellite Deployable Antennas by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, U.S.A.
  • An Integrated SiGe Differential-Correlating Radiometer for CubeSat-Based Atmospheric Sensing by Georgia Institute of Technology, U.S.A.
  • Inter-celestial Communication CubeSat Antenna by University of Texas at Dallas, U.S.A.
  • Proof of Concept for a Small Satellite Communication System using a fully integrated Telemetry and Telecommand Unit Approach by University of Bremen, Germany
  • Using GNSS for autonomous Moon navigation by University of Minnesota, U.S.A.
  • W-Band GaN PA with Pre-Distortion and Efficiency Enhancement Based on GaN DCDC Variable Power Supply for Space Applications by University of Stuttgart, Germany

We are also very happy to announce that two proposals from underrepresented countries within MTT-S are supported with an early adopter grant:

  • Built-in self-testing for CubeSat receivers by University of Pretoria, South Africa
  • Lora Patch Antenna and COTS-based Receiver Module for Disaster Mitigation M2M Communications by Telkom University, Indonesia

We wish all teams success with their projects and are looking forward to the presentation of the teams’ results at one of MTT-S conferences or publications. Please stay tuned for the announcement of further details.
