FreeFall Aerospace – Inflatable Antenna
Space antennas direct data to the right ground station or device on the ground. However, they are usually large and expensive to put into orbit. Low mass and low power alternatives generally also have low data rates. Inflatable reflectors offer high data rates without the mass and complexity of traditional solutions, enabling modern applications such as fifth-generation (5G) wireless.
The US-based startup Freefall Aerospace develops antenna technology for use in ground, air, and space. The startup’s inflatable antenna for spacecraft systems is ultra-low mass and volume. The antennas have spherical reflectors and large apertures for wide fields of view and high gain. The solution uses electronic beam steering to transmit big data from CubeSats and small spacecraft.
