Test results between 10 and 100 times faster than traditional near-field antenna measurement systems.
The time-to-market demands and deployment milestones of the NewSpace sector for LEO satellites has given rise to the SG EVO, a new multi-probe, spherical near-field antenna measurement and OTA testing solution for satellite antenna systems.
The SG Evo is featured in the 2021 June edition of the Microwave Journal. Read all about it!
The Microwave Journal, the leading publication and web source for information about RF and Microwave technology, introduces MVG’s AeroLab as a product feature in their September Military and Aerospace supplement.
Check out the story on MWJ.
Bringing MVG multi-probe microwave testing technology to the aircraft radome testing market, AeroLab was designed specifically for testing aircraft nose radomes in the repair and test environment.
5G NR expands into higher frequencies and uses new technologies that increase complexity in the way signals are built, transmitted and processed compared to 4G. As the standard continues to evolve, more new features will be added so testing needs to be flexible and ready to adapt to the higher mmWave frequencies with wider bandwidths, denser waveforms and a growing number of test cases.
This latest eBook of Microwave Journal starts out with a couple of general articles about 5G testing challenges and a 5G NR standards overview. One article provides an overview of the various test methods including the advantages and disadvantages of the methods. Then it summarizes some of the solutions available from 9 leading test and measurement companies in this field, including MVG's solutions. You will be able to read the latest case study on how MVG's mmWave OTA test system provides proof of concept for measuring 5G beamforming.
Read this eBook to learn more about the challenges and solutions for 5G OTA testing!
AMTA, the Antenna Measurement Technique Association, is dedicated to the development, application, and dissemination of advanced antenna, radar signature, and related measurement technologies. This international organization has influenced the industry with innovation and insight in the field since 1979. Its highly anticipated symposium brings together members from around the world to share technological advances. The non-profit organization thrives as a result of volunteer efforts from devoted members. Recognition to those who prove themselves to be fully dedicated not only to AMTA, but to advancements in technology in the field, naturally follows.
MVG has been involved in AMTA for more than 34 years! Several MVG employees have been dedicated to AMTA as board members and more. We are proud and pleased to announce that 3 of our team were awarded at this year’s annual AMTA Symposium.
Top of the list, Lars Foged, MVG Scientific Director, earned the AMTA Distinguished Achievement Award for his outstanding pioneering and contributions to the practice of antenna design, analysis and measurement. This is the most honorable of all AMTA awards.
Then, John Estrada received his plaque of recognition for outstanding service to AMTA. John has been an active member for more than 25 years. He chaired and hosted AMTA 2010 while Managing Director of Satimo USA, was a member of the board from 2014 to 2016, as meeting coordinator and Vice President, and continues to serve as he takes part in the organization committee for AMTA 2018 in Williamsburg.
Finally, Ed Szpindor was awarded recognition as a Senior Member of AMTA. He has been a member for more than 15 years and was awarded for his continuous contributions.
Congratulations Lars, John and Ed for these accomplishments. We are also grateful for your contributions, time and energy at MVG!
MICROWAVE JOURNAL CHINA
On the occasion of the ESoA Summer courses which took place in China in August, Microwave Journal interviewed exclusively Lars Foged on antenna test and measurement technologies as well as MVG's competitve advantages.
Take a look at some very challenging questions the journalist asked:
"What technical problems are antenna test and measurement engineers facing today?"
"How do the emerging antenna technologies and applications such as antennas for 5G base stations and handsets, IoT devices, massive MIMO, commercial phased-arrays, 3D printing, metamaterials, etc., affect the methods and techniques of antenna test and measurement?"
"Which standards for antenna test and measurement are in development now? What’s the role of MVG in the international antenna test and measurement standards process?"
"Can MVG’s existing antenna test products and solutions meet all the testing requirements of all existing antennas? Whatever the frequency, power, size and form factor of an antenna are, and what scenarios are: on-site, in a production line or in a laboratory."
