The electrical antenna model was developed based on our successful deployable antenna system. This model has identical functional electrical and software interfaces as a flight antenna model but does not feature the flight antennas and mechanical parts. This allows the electrical model to be a cost-effective and safe alternative for a flight antenna for your engineering or development models or used as a replacement during flat-sat testing of your proto flight model.
