Antennas on a satellite act as the primary communication medium with the ground control centre.

It also acts as a payload sensor for data gathering in a few applications. Antennas are usually mounted on the body. They are custom fitted to provide coverage at specific regions of the earth.

Data Patterns can give suitable design solutions based on requirements, including the few listed below.

    •  Mono-pole antenna, dipole horn antenna, patch antenna, dish antenna and helix antenna.

    •  Linear (horizontal or vertical) or circular (left-hand or right-hand) polarization.

    •  Fixed, Deploy-able and Antenna array with steering mechanism.
