July 2017

I was pleased to attend the IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego, CA, in July 2017. The conference was held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. My team at Ellumen Inc. and I presented some of the results of our research and development efforts. We were part of the Inverse Scattering and Imaging: Systems Interactive Forum. The paper I contributed on and helped present was titled “Experimental Microwave Near-field Detection with Moveable Antennas.” A microwave detection system was described and accompanying microwave images using the system were shown. My colleague presented a paper titled, “A Novel Dual-Band Beam-Switching Antenna Based on Active Frequency Selective Surfaces.” This presentation covered discussion of a dual-band beam switching antenna based on frequency selective surfaces capable of being used in modern wireless communications systems.

Below are a few pictures at and around the conference.
