Title (EN) REFLECTOR-SENSOR WITH PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEM COMPRISING SUCH A REFLECTOR-SENSOR
(FR) REFLECTEUR-CAPTEUR A CELLULES PHOTOVOLTAIQUES ET SYSTEME DE COMMUNICATION COMPORTANT UN TEL REFLECTEUR-CAPTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns a reflector-sensor for receiving/transmitting electromagnetic waves respectively from and to a satellite and for collecting and converting an amount of solar energy into electric power, said reflector-sensor comprising a reflecting surface (2) equipped with a plurality of photovoltaic cells (4) and at least an electronic head (6) receiving/transmitting E.M. waves, said photovoltaic cells (4) are transparent to E.M. waves and are fixed on the greater part of the reflecting surface (2) such that the reflector-sensor operates both as receiver/transmitter antenna and solar energy collector (4). The invention is characterised in that said photovoltaic cells are integrated in the reflecting surface (2) between a first layer (10) transparent to E.M. waves and to solar radiation for protecting said cells (4) and a second layer (12) for reflecting the E.M. waves.
(FR) Réflecteur-capteur apte à recevoir/émettre des ondes électromagnétiques respectivement de et vers un satellite et à capter et convertir une quantité de rayonnement solaire en énergie électrique, ledit réflecteur-capteur comportant une surface de réflexion (2) munie d'une pluralité de cellules photovoltaïques (4) et au moins une tête électronique (6) d'émission/réception des ondes E.M., lesdites cellules photovoltaïques (4) sont transparentes aux ondes E.M. et sont fixées sur la majeure partie de la surface de réflexion (2) de telle sorte que le réflecteur-capteur remplisse une double fonction d'antenne d'émission/réception et de capteur d'énergie solaire (4). Selon l'invention, ces cellules photovoltaïques sont incorporées dans la surface de réflexion (2) entre une première couche (10) transparente aux ondes E.M. et au rayonnement solaire, destinée à protéger lesdites cellules (4) et une deuxième couche (12) destinée à réfléchir les ondes E.M..
