Antennas on the Move – In Rockets, Planes, and Satellites!

April 11, 2023 @ 7:00 am - April 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

This program was designed by the IEEE Seattle EMC Chapter and the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) to bring the latest inspired technology to the Pacific Northwest on Antenna Design as well as Antenna, 5G, EMC, and Wireless Test and Measurement Techniques for industry applications. Invited experts in industry, government, and academia will share practical information on various topics in an extended presentation format. This allows a thorough discussion of each topic and provides the opportunity for extended questions and answers. The “hands-on” quality of the presentations enables the registrant to learn useful information that can be used on the job – in the “real world.” Back by popular demand, the renowned Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), IEEE Fellow, will provide a four-hour “mini short course” to begin the program on April 11. He will discuss “The Art, Science and Engineering of Modern Antennas: Measurements from Marconi’s First Measurements to Today’s Amazing Advances.” Many exhibitors will showcase their latest offerings in 5G, Antenna and EMC related products and services on Tuesday, April 11; the day concludes with a networking “Happy Hour” reception. All pre-registered attendees and exhibitors are invited to attend and informally visit with the speakers and each other! On Wednesday morning, April 12, an interactive half-day workshop is planned complete with lectures and LIVE demos. In addition to the technical program, a technical tour is planned for Wednesday afternoon, April 12, 2023, following the workshop. Registrants of the April 11-12 event are eligible to attend a technical tour of the newly opened Dual Robotic Antenna Measurement System (DRAMS) at Boeing Seattle. Tour attendees will see Boeing’s “Antenna Lab of the Future” that enables dramatically faster, more accurate antenna testing results. You can learn more about the DRAMS chamber (https://www.boeing.com/features/innovation-quarterly/2022/11/robot-room-video.page). Please note the tour is tentative at this point and will be held based upon sufficient interest. See the complete technical program with daily schedule, speaker bios, presentation abstracts, venue/parking info, registration fees, and more at www.amta.org/AMTA2023Regional. If you are interested in reserving a tabletop display, please note tabletop spaces are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.
