Course Description

Course Overview Antennas and electromagnetic wave propagation form the basis of all radio communications systems and have a strong influence on overall system performance in terms of robustness and quality. This 3-day course provides a solid grounding in the basic concepts and application of electromagnetic waves, propagation and antennas to a variety of radio frequency (RF), wireless and microwave communications systems. Terrestrial and satellite radio systems are covered, both in fixed and mobile contexts. Throughout the course a variety of real-world, practical antennas and antenna array implementations are discussed. Business Benefits The course will deliver the following business benefits: Reduced design and development times and costs Improved design and development efficiency Improved design quality and system performance Reduced development and project risks Course Programme The course content covers: Basic electromagnetic wave theory Propagation in free space in the various frequency bands Propagation effects: Direct, sky and ground waves Interaction of waves with obstacles; Diffraction and scattering Fading mechanisms Basic concepts in antenna theory Antenna types including dipole, loop, patch, horn, dish and helical Reactive and radiating near-field (Fresnel region) Far-field (Fraunhofer region) and Friis transmission equation Antenna arrays and array factors (uniform, binomial etc.) Sidelobes, nulls, beam broadening and beam steering Antenna measurement techniques for anechoic chambers Course Venue Delivered on-site either at customer premises or at any suitable venue throughout the UK, Europe and Rest of the World. Dates Flexible according to your requirements. What's Included? Course participants will each receive a set of high-quality bound course notes printed in full colour and a Certificate of Attendance.
