New technologies available on the market are capable of sampling signal in the microwave range.This kind of technology can make possible the development of microwave sampling front end for space communication applications.This study proposes to analyse the feasibility of the development of a generic microwave sampling front end for multiple frequency bands (S,X and Ka band) and for multiple applications (from near earth to deep space). After requirement analysis the detailed specification of the sampling front end willbe derived and high level architecture defined. Then a technology state of the art analysis will be conducted and the detail designof the front end executed. All the neccessary simulations and models will be developed in order to prove the feasibility of concept.
