This contribution proposes the use of liquid crystals (LCs) for the realization of an electronically scanning antenna for SOTM user terminals based on a reconfigurable metasurface (MTS). The proposed solution is based on a periodic leaky wave (LW) structure, whose modulation period is changed dynamically to achieve beam scanning. Numerical results of a preliminary design for 1D scanning are presented.
