    A consortium consisting of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, WORK Microwave and AVANTI Communications recently completed highly successful over-the-air trials on Avanti HYLAS satellite capacity employing the latest DVB-S2X modulator and demodulator equipment.

  5. KAUST Develops Algorithm To Shape MIMO Radar Waveforms In Real Time
    5/9/2017

    Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have developed a new algorithm used to design waveforms to control MIMO (multiple input – multiple output) radar beam patterns in real time.

  6. EPFL Researchers Turn Mechanical Oscillator Into Quantum Reservoir
    5/16/2017

    Scientists at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have successfully demonstrated that cooling a mechanical oscillator close to its quantum ground state will turn it into a quantum reservoir that can shape the states of microwave photons in a superconducting circuit. It's the latest attempt to harness microwaves for quantum information processing.

  7. Spatially Adaptive Digital TV Broadcast System Saves Power, Cuts Carbon Emissions
    5/15/2017

    Engineers at the University of Bristol have delivered a proof of concept showing how a spatially adaptive broadcast system can realize reductions in digital broadcast power of up to 35 percent, which in turn can cut carbon emissions and overall broadcasting costs.

  8. Ultra-Wideband Radar Scanning Greenland's Glaciers Helps Predict Rising Sea Levels
    5/26/2017

    A new type of ground-based, ice-penetrating radar will help scientists better understand the mechanics and changes inside the ice sheets and glaciers of Greenland, which are melting at historically fast rates that threaten to raise sea levels and inundate cities.
