ACE - Smart antennas

Start: 01 January 2004
End: 31 January 2006
Funding: European
Status: Due
Division: Communication Systems
Department: Advanced Signal and Information Processing (ASIP)

The ACE Network proposes to structure the fragmented European antenna R&D, reduces duplications and boosts excellence and competitiveness in the key area of antenna engineering. Sophisticated antennas are a strategic multi-application technology for emerging communications, navigation and sensing services for the Information Society, for Aeronautics & Space, for transport, security, de-mining and tele-medicine.

The Antenna Centre of Exellence is focused on the electromagnetic interface from conductors to free space radiated waves, the beam-forming functions, whether they are analogue or digital, and adaptive “smart” systems to optimize communication systems performance.
