On the technical tour, visitors will see the SARL which consists of two ETS Lindgren anechoic chambers, both capable of full pattern measurements and general field measurements. Both have multi axis positioners and associated hardware. The 8050 chamber is for small aperture antennas and the 8100 is for larger aperture antennas and structures weighing up to 75 pounds.
In addition to the chambers, visitors will see an ANSYS/ANSOFT design suite which makes use of a high performance computer cluster for performing complex electromagnetic simulations.
They will also see instrumentation used for research and development, consisting in part of an Agilent PXA and a MIMO test solution.
