Course Overview:

Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training Hands-on

This two-day Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course teaches the basics of antenna and a brief overview of antenna arrays. Fundamental concepts such as beam patterns, radiation resistance, polarization, gain/directivity, aperture size, reciprocity, and matching techniques are presented. Different types of antennas such as dipole, loop, patch, horn, dish, and helical antennas are discussed and compared and contrasted from a performance – applications standpoint. The locations of the reactive near-field, radiating near-field (Fresnel region), and far-field (Fraunhofer region) are described and the Friis transmission formula is presented with worked examples. Propagation effects are presented. Antenna systems (transmit/receive) with active amplifiers are introduced. Finally, measurement techniques commonly used in anechoic chambers are outlined.

Customize It:

• We can adapt this Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.

Audience:

• This Antenna & Antenna Array Fundamentals Training course is invaluable to engineers seeking to work with experts in the field and for those desiring a deeper understanding of antenna concepts. At its completion, you will have a solid understanding of the appropriate antenna for your application and the technical difficulties you can expect to encounter as your design is brought from the conceptual stage to a working prototype.
