Development of RF and microwave metrology capability

Short Name: RFMicrowave, Project Number: 15RPT01
Large Smartphone
Improved microwave measurement capabilities will boost quality and confidence in advanced technologies.

Radio frequency (RF) and microwave technology has undergone revolutionary changes over the last 40 years and it is more pervasive than ever today, with smart phones, GPS and wireless networks playing a key role in our everyday lives. As RF and microwave technology continues to progress, providing innovative applications across the healthcare, energy, security and other sectors, industry requires novel measurement methods and devices to underpin their production. This project aims to increase the microwave measurement capabilities and expertise of emerging EURAMET countries, providing a foundation for effective cooperation on emerging technical challenges in this rapidly evolving field. This will be done by transferring theoretical and practical know-how between partners and combining skills to improve the reliability and precision of RF and microwave metrology. The capabilities developed will provide essential tools for European industry to ensure product quality, create end user confidence and accelerate innovation.
