This paper presents a concept of a novel multibeam antenna that can serve as a key component for multiple data relays linking several LEO satellites to a single earth station via a GEO satellite. High data rates up to several hundreds of Mbit/s can be achieved. The proposed antenna operates at about 26 GHz and can track LEO satellites both by switching between different beams and by applying digital beamforming.
