Satellite communication (SATCOM) is one of the pillars of the modern world, with applications including Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation, space research, telecommunications, internet access, weather monitoring, and law-enforcement surveillance.

Together with the satellite itself, ground stations are crucial to the SATCOM industry. They transmit and receive data to and from the satellite, process the information, and apply it to different purposes, depending on the application. Therefore, it’s fundamental to ensure an efficient, reliable, and robust communication link between satellites and ground stations, which can prove to be difficult with conventional antennas.
