Antenna


The antenna wires are made from 2 mm aluminium and are folded using springs in the end- and midpoint of each antenna wire. When deployed, they form a circular polarization canted turnstile antenna on the zenith face with a gain very close to 0 dBi. During launch, the antenna is folded on the outside of this one face. Deployment is done by melting the polyester strings holding the antennas folded.
