S-Band Circular Antenna

The AAC SpaceQuest developed AC-2000 nanosatellite polarized S-band antenna has been designed with high performance and ease of system integration in mind.

The AC-2000 is a turnstile circular polarized S-band antenna for micro satellite and small satellite. Its small size, low profile, rugged design, and high directionality make it an excellent addition to the system. This robust design is ideal for applications where true circularity and low elevation angle performance is required. This flight proven commercially available solution covers a bandwidth of up to 300 MHz and is compatible with the nanosatellite standard. With high gain, 2 dBi or 2 dBic, the AAC SpaceQuest developed AC-200 offers exceptional performance. The antenna also has a built-in ground plan and can include an optional protective cover.

While not CubeSat Standard, this solution can be used in a CubeSat system design.
