SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRATION FOR X-BAND SAMPLING TECHNOLOGY
In 2018, Callisto was awarded an ESA’s Technology Research Program contract to study and develop an RF sampling demonstrator.
The demonstrator has been designed to operate in ESA Rx frequency bands: S, X, K and Ka. At the end of 2019, after the completion of the design phase, the demonstrator has been developed and tested in S & X-band.
Factory acceptance tests are validated by ESA, which confirm the expected performance over 250MHz bandwidth.
Next step is to test this demonstrator in an operational environment.
