Narrow and wideband fixed and deployable solutions across a wide range of frequencies
PSI provides customized, structurally-integrated antenna solutions to meet the particular needs of each customer application.
Our customers work closely with PSI to achieve best-in-class performance in a number of criteria including gain, bandwidth, packaging efficiency, deployed area, and speed of system delivery from cradle to flight.
Broadband Cubesat Antennas
Qualified to GSFC-STD-7000 levels for launch and on-orbit survivability
Capability Description: Delivered custom flight-qualified antennas (including qualification and acceptance testing) in less than 12 months from customer requirement definition to delivery.
- High Gain
- Low per-unit cost
Large Deployable Antennas
We specialize in design and development of lightweight, low-cost antennas for tactical awareness (SIGINT, Comms, and ISR)
Capability Description: PSI’s highly customizable flex circuit membrane antennas are designed to stow within a small satellite volume for launch and then deploy into an aperture with performance typically associated with much larger and more expensive satellites.
• Extremely high ratio of deployed antenna aperture area vs stowed volume
• Demonstrated narrow and broadband operation in frequency bands between UHF to C-band
• RF and structure designs integrated and optimized through iterative work between collaborative RF and mechanical design teams
• Antennas designed with a “structure is the antenna” approach for volume and mass efficiency by using structural elements as part of the RF design
