Retired Work: FSS Antenna System provides more communications capability into less footprint.
lineSyntonics’ patented frequency selective surface (FSS) antenna system packs more communications capability into less footprint for satcom-on-the-move, transportable, and shipboard satellite terminals. In one configuration, existing X, Ku, or Ka-band satellite dishes are fitted with lower frequency FSS antenna appliqué to add a second operating band to the system, increasing its productivity. In another configuration, multiple independent, lightweight FSS antennas are packaged within a single radome.

Feature Advantages Communications Benefits
One radome houses
multiple antennas
Increased communications capability in same footprint
  • Add satcom band with minimal impact to shipboard platform
  • Increase utilization of existing antenna pedestals
Antenna panels are structural foam Strong, lightweight, non-corrosive, cost-effective
  • Upgrade existing dish antennas
  • Reduce topside weight
  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Antenna panels can
be independent
Ability to simultaneously track different satellites
  • Operate simultaneously with geosynchronous & polar satellites



LSXExample application: Multiple independent satcom antennas in the same radome
Two-three independently pointed FSS antennas can be packaged within same radome, one per antenna frequency band. This:

  • Consolidates multiple frequency bands into one radome
  • Reduces shipboard footprint for satellite communications antennas



Example application: FSS antenna appliqué on existing satcom dish antenna
An FSS "antenna appliqué" can be installed over the face of existing parabolic dish antennas. This:

  • Adds a lower frequency band to existing antenna systems using the same pedestal
  • Increases productivity of shipboard antenna pedestals by increasing their utilization rate
