A feasibility study of a shaped dual reflector antenna equipped with a reconfigurable subreflector for a realistic mission scenario in Ku band is presented. The reconfigurable surface will be modelled by a mesh of interwoven flexible wires, supported by control points. A detailed sensitivity analysis to actuator settings will be performed.
