  • J. N. Matos, A. Rocha, L. S. L. Leitão, M. S. Neves, T. Ferreira, IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society 2019 Contest Student 2nd Place Award, Goal: Propose a setup that characterizes/demonstrates the properties of an antenna system and provide educational material to explain these properties. Specifications The setup must be able to measure/demonstrate some properties of an antenna system. These properties include (but are not limited to) impedance, efficiency, frequency of operation, bandwidth, gain, polarization, beam width, RCS, MIMO performance… The results must be displayed in real time. The setup and procedure must be easy to understand for non-specialists. The setup must be easy to reproduce in a classroom. The setup must be designed using the non-dedicated/non-specialized equipment. The teams are encouraged to use devices as mobile phones, small drones, or any commercially available device that is NOT specifically intended for antenna/RF testing. The teams have to explain the theory behind their demonstration setup in a simple way (so that it can be understood by non-engineers.) Step-by-step instructions to allow reproducing the system for anyone who wants to use it for teaching purposes have to be provided. Merit will be assigned to designs based on the following criteria, equally weighted: - Creativity and justification of the design; - Capability of the system to show the properties of the system under test; - Use of non-standard equipment and DIY strategies; - Quality of the experimental model and results; - Educational value and clarity of the DIY/demonstration instructions. Existing licensed software at the university (e.g., electromagnetic simulation software) or free software may be used. Any other commercial software used for the project should be included in the budget. The total production cost for the entire system must be less than US$1,500., 01-07-2019
