The Surrey S-Band Quadrifilar Helix antenna provides a cost-effective downlink antenna solution for a wide range of LEO missions. It is capable of supporting high data rates and RF power, and the design provides a low physical footprint with an optimal gain pattern.
Surrey's Quadrifilar Antenna can downlink Payload data at data rates up to 10Mbps Data Rate at S-Band frequency and can also be used to downlink Telemetry data.
This antenna produces a cardioid pattern with a nadir null to ensure constant power flux density at the Earth’s surface throughout the duration of a pass.

Storage and Handling
- Surrey is compliant with ISO9000:2000 requirements.
- Surrey is compliant with the requirements of the following standard processes:
- NASA-STD-8739.3: Manual Soldering
- NASA-STD-8739.2: Surface-Mount Technology
- IPC-6012: Qualification and performance Specifications for space flight PWBs.
- Whenever possible, all Surrey flight hardware units must be kept in a clean environment, e.g. ISO class 8 (100,000) clean room, with a temperature range between 19ºC and 25ºC and a relative humidity range between 40% and 60%.
- Surrey recommends that customer personnel who will handle Surrey hardware have received clean room behavior training, including dress code, module handling, use of appropriate tools and anti-static procedures, and have read and understood all Surrey deliverable documentation
