Abstract
A beacon developed and breadboarded by the SPACEBEL Instrumentation in the framework of the ESA Semiconducter Intersatellite Experiment (Silex) is described. The Silex Beacon is a powerful source aboard the GEO terminal, used by the LEO terminal to locate the latter. The paper describes the general architecture of the Silex Beacon and the flight model design and discusses the future developments. The far field pattern obtained by the breadboard is presented.
