Helios deployable antenna
The Helios Antenna features a Quadrifilar Helical Antenna with an electrically powered method of deployment. The Helios Antenna can be developed to operate from 400Mhz to 3000Mhz. The HCT Helios series of antennas can accommodate several operational purposes from near hemispherical coverage to narrow beamwidths, including ISO-FLUX beam patterns. Quadrifilar Helical Antenna patterns can be arranged to be either right hand or left hand circularly polarized. Thus, having significant advantages over linearly polarized antennas. The antennas can be developed to reside in less than one-half of a 1U cube structure. This makes the innovative Helios Antenna appropriate for small satellite applications.
