Part of the European Commission’s H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, the European Industrial Doctorate programme REVOLVE: Radio Technologies for Broadband Connectivity in a Rapidly Evolving Space Ecosystem: Innovating Agility, Throughput, Power, Size and Cost addresses the rapidly growing need for performance and cost in emerging satellite missions focusing on new technologies and design methods for antenna and radio front-ends. Structured around a major European satellite integrator (Thales Alenia Space in France), REVOLVE brings together four further leading European R&D laboratories from universities, industries, and technology institutes. All of the laboratories are in the domain of radio frequency electronics and antennas for space applications and are located in France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom. Together with an interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international team of supervisors, REVOLVE brings together 7 Early Stage Researchers in the area of antennas, manufacturing, electronics and system engineering to underpin the European Space Sector for the emerging developments in this field.
