A lightweight, low-cost, simultaneous X-band and Ka-band feed-system has been designed and matched to a deployable flyaway SATCOM antenna. The performance of the complete antenna assembly has been simulated and the results show that very good performance can be achieved in both X and Ka-band from a relatively small antenna.
