The antennas from ISL aim be the first truly ‘broadband’ low-profile antenna with fully electronic beam steering, easily scalable to effective apertures and can be designed to match almost any desired form factor. Designed for satellite broadcast, VSAT, microwave, multipoint wireless and 5G broadband communications, the antennas are low cost and have no moving parts to adhere to the stability requirements of mobility.

“As advances in high throughput satellites and constellations continue to drive demand for high capacity data on the move, a new range of low profile antennas, with no moving parts, exceptional spectral efficiency, at low price prices is required,” said Dan DiFonzo, Chief Technology Officer, ISL. “However, existing antennas, such as phased array and metamaterial antennas continue to lack spectral and/or power efficiency, scalability, to meet the business requirements for the mobility sector.”

ISL will initially focus on broadcast and VSAT applications in the satellite industry, partnering with the world’s leading scientists and engineers in the field of antenna design.

Robert Dooner, Director of Waterlow Management venture capital firm commented,  “We are confident in not only the technology, but also the pedigree and experience of the world’s leading experts on the ISL technical team led Prof. Yang Hao at Queen Mary University, London, in this new approach to antenna design. ISL’s solid understanding of the market and business challenges matched with its state of the art facilities will define the roadmap for the most innovative commercial products in the industry.”

“The core of our technology is the adaptable form factor, simple manufacturing and significantly lower cost,” said Dan DiFonzo. “This will enable users to access a wide variety of mobile, portable and fixed satellite services going well beyond the capabilities of existing antenna solutions.”
