“The measured over-the-air scan results agree with the theoretical figures from our simulation model and this once again confirms the high performance of the compact, scalable antenna modules and the overall system architecture for larger panels,” said Professor Ali Safavi-Naeini, Director of CIARS (Center for Intelligent Antenna and Radio Systems) at the University of Waterloo. The story goes on
This advanced phased array Ka-band antenna is expected to open up new mobile vertical markets (land, ship, air) for the company. 1026 Element RX / TX phased array antenna
The company will continue to move forward and conduct additional tests to verify the antenna’s performance across multiple different satellites, including GEO / LEO constellations, and to confirm the mobility and interoperability of the new design. “The modular, intelligent technology platform offers a cost-effective solution for a wide variety of applications – from fixed line to mobile satellite broadband services and for the rapidly emerging millimeter-wave 5G cellular services,” he added.
Prototyping of a 4000 element antenna using the same building blocks to build the 1000 element antenna is in progress. The commercialization planning phase for this new antenna is underway.

About C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. “Today we are much closer to our goal of providing an affordable, electronically controllable antenna system that can be operated from the latest constellations of LEO, MEO and GEO satellites, providing broadband solutions to global markets “Said Dr. Leslie Klein, President & CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. C-COM expects Flat Panel Antennas (FPA), which today represent less than 1% of all sales in the satellite terminal market, to account for up to 15% of the market by 2030. According to Northern Sky Research, a global research and advisory firm focused on the satellite and space sectors, FPA shipments could reach $ 17 billion over the next decade. “FPAs will be in high demand around the world for the next ten years and C-COM intends to become part of that market,” added Klein.
