Modern Antenna and Electromagnetic Measurements: Half-Day LIVE & IN-PERSON Workshop

September 13 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for a complimentary lunch sponsored by SteppIR and Advanced Test Equipment Corp (ATEC). Following lunch, attendees will hear FOUR experts present on modern antenna and electromagnetic measurements to boost your test efficiency, reliability, and repeatibility. In addition to the two presentations shown below, this half-day event also features speakers Zhong Chen with ETS-Lindgren and Dennis Lewis with Boeing. Mr. Chen will present “Site VSWR for Anechoic Chamber Performance Evaluation – Past, Present, and Future” Mr. Lewis will present “Complex Cavity Measurement Techniques for the Assessment of Aircraft Electromagnetic Environments” Following the presentations, Dr. Kent will present a Private Lecture at the Museum of Flight on a few key US aircraft spanning 1935-1960, many of which involved game changing technologies for their day. Within time constraints, we’ll visit some key fighters (P-38, P-51, F-14 Tomcat) and bombers (B-17, B-29, B-47) as well as the SR-71, which fielded the first stealthy technologies. Did you know for instance that the B-29 was so advanced it had over 100 separate patents including the first airborne analog computer system! Did you also know that the re-engined B-50 Superfortress became Lucky Lady II, the first aircraft to fly around the world non-stop, during a 94-hour flight in 1949? Learn about the fascinating story behind these engineering marvels from an aeronautical expert and noted storyteller, Dr. Brian Kent. Wear comfortable walking shoes! Workshop attendees are free to attend this group tour OR visit any of the open exhibits on your own at the Museum of Flight until the 5:00 pm closing time. Access to the Museum of Flight is provided at no charge to all registered workshop attendees who are wearing the museum wristband provided upon arrival.
