AstroMesh®

An AstroMesh® configuration is available for almost every off-set space antenna application, and with its best in class compaction ratios, AstroMesh® can be stowed for the most challenging launch envelopes. Astro has developed a flight proven family of deployable mesh reflectors capable of excellent RF performance from low frequency (UHF) to high frequency (beyond Ka-Band) in aperture sizes ranging from 3 to 22 meters. Our designs are scalable, inherently stiff, incredibly light with unmatched surface accuracy, and free from the Passive Inter-Modulation (PIM) that plagues most competitive designs.
