This document presents a Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) developed by ANYWAVES with the support of the French Space Agency (CNES) and the help of an academic partner XLIM. This antenna is circularly-polarized, dual-band (Upper-L-Band [1.559 - 1.61 GHz] and TTC S-Band [2.025 - 2.29 GHz]) and designed to be integrated on a CubeSat or Nanosatellite. The particularity of this DRA is that the dielectric part is a structured 3D-printed block of Zirconia with two different permittivities. Two different feeding lines have been designed: with and without an integrated diplexer.
