Date and location
27 - 28 November and 4 - 5 December, Live virtual
Optional technical visit 6 December, London, UK
IET Member / student:
This interactive, live virtual, training course will provide delegates with an understanding of modern near-field antenna range measurements.
The course is led by Prof. Stuart Gregson, the lead author Principles of Planar Near-Field Antenna Measurements and co-author of Theory and Practice of Modern Antenna Range Measurements.
Topics covered include an introduction to antennas and antenna measurements, planar near-field measurements and theory, advanced antenna measurements, applications and more.
The course focuses on the practicalities of antenna measurements, asking what do we want to measure and how do we do it. This approach will enable you to apply your learning to your own contexts back in the office.
The course is spread out over a two-week period from 1pm to 5.30pm GMT, allowing delegates from the UK, Europe, and North America to join virtually.
What will the course cover?
During the course you can expect to:
- Learn the fundamentals as well as advanced Antenna Measurement techniques.
- Gain an understanding of the Planar Near-Field Theory from a measurement perspective.
- Learn the theory and practice of Advanced antenna measurements, range assessments and error budgets.
- Understand the practicalities of taking high quality measurements including selecting measurement type and measurement setup, choosing near-field probes, interpreting data.
Who should attend?
This course is intended for researchers, engineers and technicians who want to obtain a better understanding of antenna measurement concepts, theory, practice and techniques.
- Antenna Engineers
- Radar Engineers
- System Architects
- Telecoms Engineers
- Network Engineers
- System Engineers
- Measurement Technicians
- Academics and Researchers
- PhD students and post-doctoral researchers

"Excellent course and highly relevant to my work.”
Huawei Tech Duesseldorf GmbH
"The Modern Antenna Range Measurements Course was excellent and covered more than just planar antenna measurements. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone involved in antenna measurements.”
"I found this course very interesting and beneficial to my working role as an RF measurement engineer. Stuart is a very approachable course lecturer and encourages his 'students' to ask questions.”
Principles of Planar Near-Field Antenna Measurements, 2nd Edition
This expanded and updated second edition with full colour images provides a comprehensive introduction and explanation of both the theory and practice of planar near-field antenna measurement, from its basic postulates and assumptions, to the intricacies of its deployment in complex and demanding measurement scenarios.
Course delegates will receive a complimentary copy of the book in digital format, this will be emailed to you a few days prior to the event.
