13/07/17  Plextek presents at the 2017 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation

Plextek presents two technical papers to the world’s leading experts on Antennas and Propagation at the IEEE International Symposium in July.

Cambridge, UK – 21st June 2017 – Design and innovation consultancy, Plextek will be presenting two technical papers at this year’s IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego.

Widely recognised as a premier international forum, the world’s leading experts in antennas and propagation from academia, industry, and government will be there to discuss ideas on cutting-edge research and topics.

The week-long event will host a plethora of technical, education and social activities covering different specialist areas on antennas, propagation, electromagnetic engineering, and radio science.

Dr. Marcus Walden, Technical Lead in Antennas and Propagation commented:

“The Antennas and Propagation Symposium is a great forum to meet and network with people at the forefront of their technology areas, to exchange ideas and learn about cutting-edge topics. Antennas and propagation are integral to all radar and communications systems and, therefore, participation at events like this benefits the Plextek engineering design process. The knowledge gained from previous events has fed directly into Plextek system designs, including those for radar, smart-meter reading, and vehicle-telemetry amongst others. I’m really pleased to be able to present and share ideas with other industry thought leaders at such a prestigious event.”

The event will be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California and takes place from Sunday 9th of July to Friday 14th of July.

Dr. Marcus Walden will be delivering a 20 min presentation titled, “Antenna G/T Degradation with Inefficient Receive Antennas at HF (2-30 MHz)” as part of the session on Electronically Small Antenna Characteristics on Wednesday 12th of July.

Marcus will also participate in a two-hour interactive forum, where he will present his paper “A Frequency-Scanning Substrate-Integrated-Waveguide Meanderline Antenna for Radar Applications at 60 GHz” in the session on 60 GHz Radars and Communications on Thursday 13th of July.
