Adaptive Antenna Facility

This adaptive antenna facility has been established under National Facility Creation Project of CSIR 11th Five Year Plan. The objective was towards design, simulation and measurements of adaptive antennas for aerospace applications.

The installation and commissioning of Integrated Adaptive Antenna System has been done in Building 3-CB (CSIR 11th FYP National Facilities) during March 12th-22nd, 2012. Certification of the Integrated Adaptive Antenna System by third party consultant was carried out on 22nd March 2012.


This certified experimental facility is one of its kind test-bed (X-band) for adaptive array. The Simulation Lab. complements the measurement facility. The facility enables actual hardware development for strategic applications. Both indoor and outdoor measurements are possible.
