Microwave antennas are the backbone of the wireless communications system. Basic knowledge of microwave components is essential to develop a reliable wireless communication system. This course attempts to refresh the fundamentals as well as recent developments in the field of microwave antennas and passive components. Detail design steps of the full-wave microwave antennas and passive components, starting from text book knowledge to implementation using commercial full- wave simulators in different planar printed circuit board guiding structures will be discussed.
The course will include lectures sessions by the eminent speakers from the Industry and Academia who have working experience in Aerospace systems, Radar systems, Telecom Systems, RF and Microwave Systems etc, the session would provide in-depth understanding in Antenna Modeling and Simulation Techniques, Antenna Applications for Space, Air and Ground Systems, CubeSat Antennas - Mesh Reflectors and Reflect Arrays, Antenna Theory & Phased Arrays, Antenna Applications for Defense Industry, Theory and Design of Filters, Advances in Microstrip Filter technology, Antenna application to Health Monitoring, Substrate integrated waveguide, Low Profile Antennas on Met surfaces and Microwave Integrated Circuits.
The speakers have been/are part of projects like Mars Orbiter Mission by ISRO, Tejas- Indian Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) project, Mars Cube One X-band antennas that have enabled real-time communication during Insight entry, descent, and landing and many more in various Organizations like ISRO, DRDO, NASA, Grumman Space Systems, Altair, IBM/GLOBALFOUNDRIES, IIT’s, NIT’s and Carlos III University, Spain etc.

This short term course is supported by IEEE AP/MTT Jt Chapter Kolkata Section and TEQIP-III.
