The objective of the GALACTIC project is to lay the foundations to the low-cost Ka subsystems. The key innovative technologies are highly integrated Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) and low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC), integration and packaging. Those technologies are required for the design, fabrication and validation of a low cost, multi-component high power subsystem adequate for mass production. The integration will be validated on a Ka-band up-converter transmitter, which is the key building block of various future products for next generation broadband communication networks.
