Abstract : A spin stabilized, earth orbitting satellite having a phased array antenna capable of radiating a plurality of steered electromagnetic beams to predetermined earth locations. The antenna array extends around the satellite and is made up of individual elements which are energized through semiconductor diode devices by electron beams. The electron beams are controlled by fields having the same frequency as the spin frequency of the satellite. (Author)
