Technology challenges in the development of microwave equipment for future space systems

Success in space systems results from an exhaustive design, verification and qualification of new technologies and processes. Challenges at equipment level are passed down from new demanding applications and missions, imposing requirements in terms of power handling, mass, complexity, miniaturisation, etc. Esa is working in studies to increase the maturity of technologies that will play a key role in the future generation of microwave payloads. This presentation is an overview of the past and on-going developments at Esa in the field of microwave technologies as well as the trend for the coming years.
