Nacer Chahat

Dr. Nacer Chahat was born in Angers, France, in 1986. Over ten years of experience in design, analysis, and development of antenna for projects ranging from UHF to THz frequencies for communications, RADAR, and imaging systems. His expertise includes satellite communications antennas (for spacecraft, CubeSat, Lander, and Rover), wearable and flexible antennas for communications and biotelemetry, and antennas for remote sensing and radio astronomy instruments. He also specialized in very accurate EMI/EMC analysis for large Spacecraft. He is the project EMI/EMC System Engineer on SWOT. His passion consists on developing new technologies to solve complex problems or to open up new paradigms.

He authored and co-authored over 100 technical journal articles and conference papers and has written 4 book chapters. In the last three years at JPL, he was awarded several patents. He was a special research student in 2009 at the Graduate School of Engineering, Chiba University, Chiba, Japan. Since he joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, he worked on several flight projects: Europa Clipper, Mars2020, SWOT, NiSAR, MarCO, NeaScout, Lunar Flashlight, RainCube, LunaH-map, Lunar IceCube, BioSentinel, and CUSP.

Some of his main contributions to NASA missions are (1) the design of the Raincube Ka-band deployable mesh reflector that has successfully deployed in space and generated critical science, (2) Mars Cube One X-band antennas that have enabled real-time communication during Insight entry, descent, and landing, and (3) the highly efficient Europa lander antenna enabling direct to Earth communication link from Europa.
