Micromachining and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technologies can play a key role in miniaturization of satellite antenna front-ends. Alcatel Alenia Space France has demonstrated for the first time the operation of a V band integrated active feed combining 3D stacking concepts and micromachining technologies. The realized integrated module size is 35 times 35 mm2 with a thickness of 7 mm including miniaturized DC and RF connectors. In this paper, we present the latest test results obtained on this MEMS based active antenna
