Dr. Miguel A. Salas-Natera is an Electrical Engineer major in Telecommunications. He received the Master in Space Technologies degree in 2011, and the PhD in Technologies and Communications Systems degree in 2011 also, both from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). One year later, he was Technical Director at Antenna System Solutions Company (spin-off of the UPM) for two years. Then, Dr. Miguel Salas has made Postdoc Researcher Stage in the Applied Electromagnetism Group (GEA) at ETSIT-UPM at the time he was Adjunct Professor in the EPS-Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). Nowadays, he is Assistant Professor and Researcher at the Radiation Group of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. In addition, he is the responsible of the special session on satellite communications systems (SATCOM) since its beginnings in URSI2016 in Spain.
Miguel Salas-Natera has led and participated in a number of international (ESA, government official and private) projects related to the development of new antenna technologies, ground segment and on-board solutions, antenna test and validation ranges for the aerospace and defence industry, within public and private funding. Besides, he has worked in the design of novel antenna systems and has proposed novel uncertainty analyses methods and calibration methods for active antenna arrays being part of his research interests as the analysis, characterization and design of satellite communication antenna systems. He is currently involved in the development and design of ultra-compact reflector antennas including the development of novel technologies for phased array antennas and reflectarray antennas for satellite communication systems. Furthermore, he is actively participating in the development of flexible-transparent transponder antenna systems for classical GEO satellites systems as well as for novel massive LEO satellites and HAP systems.
