MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/ Researchers from Siberian Federal University (SFU) created a novel exciter for mirror antennas for future satellite communication stations which will notably enhance the speed of mobile services, the SFU's press service said.
The feeding device (that is the exciter) is an essential part of satellite communications. It is maintained inside the satellite antenna to capture and transmit radio signals in various frequency ranges.
"The elaborated exciter will be applied at stations, where satellite communications are in Ka/Q ranges, the great advantages of which are its small weight-size parameters and the ability to function in millimeter wavelength range. Therefore, the application of this development will involve an additional frequency resource, which in turn will facilitate a rise in the number of mobile device users and enhance the speed of satellite communications," said project chief, Konstantin Lemberg, Ph.D. in Physical and Mathematical Sciences and Senior Researcher at the Department of Radio Engineering at SFU.
In future, the developers are planning to roll out the exciter for mass production. The first parcel will be ready until the end of 2017. The researchers emphasize that in contrast to other analogous devices, the new innovation does not contain foreign spare parts, or components.
