  • Providing Coverage To The YYC Calgary International Airport
    Providing Coverage To The YYC Calgary International Airport

    Modern airports are bustling centers of communications, with an increasing number of people using mobile devices on the go and expecting anytime, anywhere connectivity. Further taxing wireless networks are airport facilities workers and public safety activities. What makes that communication so challenging is the airport’s large coverage area and high-capacity requirements. Such issues make providing adequate coverage and capacity for all users an elusive goal. That’s exactly the challenge YYC Calgary International Airport faced when it began building its new international terminal. The airport had virtually no commercial or public safety coverage from the macro, and as a result, the new international terminal faced both coverage and capacity issues.

  • High-Gain Broadband Printed Yagi Antenna For Applications In ISM Bands
    High-Gain Broadband Printed Yagi Antenna For Applications In ISM Bands

    In this work, a high-gain broadband printed Yagi directional antenna for applications in ISM bands (686 and 915 MHz) is presented. The proposed antenna was designed to be implemented in a wireless system, devoted to water and wastewater level and underground flow measurements. 

  • The Effect Of Low-Quality Antennas On Network Backhaul
    The Effect Of Low-Quality Antennas On Network Backhaul

    This paper describes the effects of various quality variables on microwave antenna performance, and provides insight into the long-term consequences of using a low-cost/ poor-quality antenna. It demonstrates the effect of operators’ preference for low-cost antennas without considering the total cost of ownership, as well as possible ill effects on their quality of service.

  • Simulation Of Beamforming By Massive MIMO Antennas In Dense Urban Environments
    Simulation Of Beamforming By Massive MIMO Antennas In Dense Urban Environments

    This application note presents a new predictive capability for simulating massive MIMO antennas and beamforming in dense urban propagation environments.  Wireless InSite MIMO predicts the complex channel matrix for mobile devices within a small cell. Beamforming techniques are used to display the actual physical beams and evaluate signal power and interference, including pilot contamination distortion.

Large Format PCBs and Antennas Large Format PCBs and Antennas

Teledyne Labtech, a business unit of Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS), is one of the few companies in the world who can offer large format PCB for use in RF/microwave applications.  Their products and PCBs can be found in a large range of products ranging from antennas for large phased array radar, to components used in the world's most sophisticated fighter aircraft. Their continued investment has expanded their capabilities to enable Teledyne Labtech to offer a large range of non-standard PCBs.  The auto-clave vacuum oven capability allows Teledyne Labtech to manufacture large format multilayer PCBs. 

Shelter Connectivity Solutions Shelter Connectivity Solutions

Highly mobile shelters deployed in harsh environments rely on the high connectivity, security, and other benefits that an RF-over-Fiber system has to offer. HUBER+SUHNER provides fiber optic cables that allow for shelters to be positioned far away from the antennas, yet still ensure that antenna links and the shelter are secure. These fiber optic cables are also able to reduce the cable footprint of the application, making the solution lighter in weight, higher in mobility, and dramatically speed up and simplify installation and maintenance.

Re-Entry Vehicle Toolbox Re-Entry Vehicle Toolbox

The Re-Entry Vehicle Toolbox from the IDS Computational Electromagnetic Laboratory has been integrated into the ADF-EMS v5.1 system. The software aims to provide a set of capabilities for the analysis and optimization of RF links between a re-entry vehicle and ground or satellite relay stations.

Optimize MIMO System Performance Optimize MIMO System Performance
