Abstract
This review deals with the design of a new reconfigurable beam antenna used to improve the efficiency of spatial telemetry links on Nano-Satellite. Advances in this domain show the needs to serve some applications with special electromagnetic beams and polarization patterns especially from LEO and MEO Space-Earth links. The RF front end must be capable to switch from high gain directive pattern to special pattern called Isoflux where the gain must be concentrated at high elevation angles with another challenge also the circular polarization. The content is a part of the CNES project that serves for multimode beam forming applications. This agile beam antenna is not built on the well-known array concept: AESA stands for Agile Electronically Scanned Array but using a new approach called ARMA standing for Agile Radiating Matrix Antenna. Contributions will show the small size elementary antenna of ARMA called Pixel, the polarization circuits that fit the challenges of the Nano-Satellite dimensions, the enhancement in the circular polarization requirements and theoretical and experimental comparison. Special beam forming required in the telemetry applications are achieved with better gain especially for the aim of wide beams. The use of the new approach will show the beam forming advantage of radiating the energy to high elevation angles.
