The European Space Agency has a wide range of applications for space antennas and for propagation models – spanning telecommunication, space science, satellite navigation, earth observation, launchers and manned space missions. In addition to the development of new antennas and new propagation models, ESA is also active in the area of antenna measurement techniques and in conducting propagation experiments. The presentation will provide an overview of the most recent successful activities and will address the areas of priority for the coming years.
