UHF deployable antenna structures for CubeSats
Antenna design for small satellites such as CubeSats constitute a challenge for designers especially at UHF frequencies. The small size of the CubeSat (10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm) imposes several constraints on the antenna design. Extreme packaging ratios and advanced deployment mechanisms have to be employed to cater for UHF antennas on a CubeSat platform.
