This paper describes the feasibility study of a Ka-band transceiver specifically designed for small satellite and CubeSat operations. The transponder is conceived to ensure up to 100 Mbit s-1 data rate with a target power consumption of 20W and an overall volume of 1.5U, not including the antenna. To keep the cost as low as possible, commercial, off-the-shelf electronic components are used whenever possible. Exploiting a data communication interface like the one proposed, the small satellites market could be opened to new applications such as remote sensing, Earth observation and commercial telecommunications.

Abstract

This paper describes the feasibility study of a Ka-band transceiver specifically designed for small satellite and CubeSat operations. The transponder is conceived to ensure up to 100 Mbit s-1 data rate with a target power consumption of 20W and an overall volume of 1.5U, not including the antenna. To keep the cost as low as possible, commercial, off-the-shelf electronic components are used whenever possible. Exploiting a data communication interface like the one proposed, the small satellites market could be opened to new applications such as remote sensing, Earth observation and commercial telecommunications.
