Compact circulator operating in Ku band
French National Research Agency (ANR)
  • Funder: French National Research Agency (ANR)Project code: ANR-18-ASTR-0013
  • Funder Contribution: 298,443 EUR
Description
This 30 months duration project concerns the development of compact circulators for applications in the Ku band, a frequency band in which new systems for defense and space telecommunications are developed. These components, essential in transmitter/receiver (T/R) modules, are today the main shortcoming concerning the required size reduction and ease of integration. The future RADAR detection and telecommunications systems must respect strong constraints of integration and performances. While some important progress already has been obtained regarding the active components, circulators / isolators are the weak link today because they are still cumbersome and exp...
