Propose low-profile and highly efficient electronically steerable antenna solutions for the next generation of In-Flight Connectivity services in the horizon 2022-2025.
Analysis and consolidation of the requirements for the next generation aviation electronically steerable antenna system
Study the impact of the use cases (e.g. GEO, MEO and LEO satellite constellations, and A2G) on the antenna definition and establish reference architecture for the antenna system
Perform a first-level assessment of the proposed technologies using paper analysis and potentially building prototypes.
Prototype of selected technology development for lab demonstrations (i.e. anechoic chambers) and potential over-the-air communication with a Satellite and/or ground infrastructure
Conduct an important set of tests in order to validate the antenna and system behaviour with regards to the stakeholder requirements
