IEEE MTT/AP/EMC Society Joint Chapter
IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT) / Antennas and Propagation (AP) / Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (EMC) Joint Chapter
MTT is a welcoming, global community of scientists and engineers engaged in research and development of the RF, microwave, mm-wave and THz technologies. These are critical enablers of a wide range of wireless-based applications, including 5G systems, sensor systems, and the Internet of Things. The Society’s flagship conference, the International Microwave Symposium, is the world’s leading event in the field and is a “must-attend” opportunity to hear outstanding technical presentations combined with a large industry exhibition. MTT has a strong volunteer ethos and its Chapters offer excellent opportunities for personal career development, networking, as well as for acquiring new knowledge.
APS provides members affordable access to cutting-edge technical information covering antenna systems and electromagnetic wave propagation and scattering in complex media for wireless communication, sensing, medical, and other applications. Membership includes access to multiple periodicals, including magazines, reduced conference registration rates, and members-only content on the AP-S website.
EMC is the world’s largest organization dedicated to the development and distribution of information, tools, and techniques for reducing electromagnetic interference. Membership includes access to multiple periodicals, networking opportunities, and discounts to EMC’s Annual Symposia.
Hyderabad is host to a large pool of RF & Microwave, Antenna and EMI-EMC Professionals, spread across various research laboratories, PSUs and industries in Hyderabad. IEEE MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter was started in 2008 under IEEE Hyderabad Section to further the interest of these common-interest professionals. This joint chapter has since been highly active and has been very successful to bring professionals from these fields to common platform. The chapter has co-sponsored and held various conferences, workshops and Lecture events. International Microwave and RF Conference, IMaRC-2015 has been a very successful event of MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter, Hyderabad. Every year, the chapter holds various Professional Talks/Lectures/Workshops for the benefit of its members. We invite prominent speakers expert in their respective fields to deliver the talks or conduct workshops or seminars. Dr. K.C. Gupta, Dr. Madhu Gupta, Dr. T K Sarkar, Dr. Vijay Nair, Dr. D C Pandey, Prof. Shiban Koul, Prof. Magdalena Salazaar, Prof. Girish Kumar, Prof. Debatosh Guha and many more are some of the speakers of our chapter. The chapter also holds jointly with Hyderabad Section, flagship annual event, Sir JC Bose Memorial Lecture. This event is regularly held on 30th November of the year. The MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter Hyderabad has received Outstanding Chapter Award for 2014-2015 for its active contribution towards its members.
Past Events (2017)
Technical Lecture Compact Antenna Test Range Systems
IEEE Hyderabad Section & MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter, organized a technical lecture on Compact Antenna Test Range Systems on 18th Nov 2017 at Auditorium – ECE Dept., University College of Engg., Osmania University, Hyderabad.
A total of fifty five(55) participants have attended the lecture out of which 34 attendees were PG and Ph. D students, 5 attendees were faculty, out of which two (2) are from Osmania University and three (3) are from other engineering colleges, 11 attendees were from industries(DRDL, AMPL, ACE antenna technology etc) and 6 out of 55 participants had IEEE membership.
The Lecture started with a welcome address by Dr. Yogesh Kumar Verma, Chairman, MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter, IEEE Hyderabad Section. He briefly introduced the importance of the lecture and Mrs. A. Bharathi, Secretary, MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter introduced the speaker Mr. Rakesh Kumar Singh, Head, Stealth Technologies and Test Ranges Division, RCI.
The lecture has given information regarding the design and development of Compact Antenna Test Ranges for Antenna Measurements. The phenomenon of plane wave formation and various parameters for the qualification of the range with results from various ranges developed are elaborated. Serrations on a reflector and inherent problems in the compact range were brought out. Large compact ranges with panels /subparts with serious hidden errors were discussed. A design example was discussed.
Dr. M. Lakshminarayana, Chairman, IEEE Hyderabad presented a memento to the speaker Rakesh K. Singh and requested the speaker to provide an opportunity to PG students of Osmania University to visit the compact range at RCI. Dr. Yogesh Kumar Verma briefed the upcoming activities of the MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter.
The session ended with vote of thanks by Dr. Prashant Mishra, Treasurer, MTT/AP/EMC Jt. Chapter.
