Active multi-beam antennas

Testing the drivers for advanced satellite concepts

Webinar: Active multi-beam antennas

Current trends in the satellite industry are high-throughput satellites and mega-constellations. The enabling technology in both trends are phased array antennas (PAA). This webinar examines the fundamentals of PAA, upcoming test challenges and how key antenna test parameters for active antennas need to be revised. In the second part, the webinar investigates how the test solutions by Rohde & Schwarz answer these challenges and how they guide and support you through the different development stages up to antennas in the field as part of terminals.

Attendees of the webinar will learn about:

  • Current topics: HTS and mega-constellations
  • Phased array antennas
  • Key antenna test parameters
  • Different production stages and upcoming test challenges
  • Antenna test solutions by Rohde & Schwarz


Yvonne Weitsch received her Dipl.-Ing. degree from the University of Stuttgart in 2005 and another Dr.-Ing. degree from the Technical University of Munich in 2011, both in electrical engineering. In 2011, she joined the Antenna Department of Rohde & Schwarz in Munich. She worked on antenna development, antenna measurement techniques as well as near-field to far-field transformation techniques and echo suppression. In 2018 and 2019, she worked closely with the Technology Management team focusing on satellite communications. Since 2019, she has been responsible for satellite testing in the market segment team for aerospace and defense.
