We should look into transparent antennae for pocketqube satellites. Surface area is at a premium on these tiny spacecraft and must be used for solar generation. Transparent conductors like Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) and silver epoxy grid antennas can be used. We have facilities at the ATI which can deposit ITO on surfaces and then form pads to connect to them via.
