The AMTA Boot Camp is a 1-day course on antenna and related measurement fundamentals. Live hands-on demonstrations complement the material presented. The Boot Camp is ideal for those new to the antenna and related measurements community and for those who would appreciate an update or “refresher” course on these topics. Instructors are specialists from industry and academia who were selected based not only on their expertise, but for their ability to communicate effectively. Topics address antenna, radar cross section, material, RF, and EMC/EMI measurements. The Boot Camp program concludes with a discussion on new innovations and trends in antenna measurements.

Project Kuiper is Amazon’s initiative to increase global broadband access through a constellation of satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO). Its mission is to deliver fast, affordable broadband to unserved and underserved communities around the world. Some of the challenges include building large, wideband spaceborne phased arrays for the satellite payload, as well as low-cost phased arrays for customer terminals that can be manufactured at scale. In this talk, we present Amazon’s approach to addressing the unmet need for broadband connectivity using a LEO constellation, Project Kuiper’s system architecture, and progress to date in developing the antenna technology for this use case.

Student Day will provide an opportunity for local university students to get a taste of antenna engineering and related disciplines by interacting with practicing engineers in a variety of venues. As in previous years, students will be able to tour vendor exhibits, sit in on papers, and enjoy a complimentary meal while listening to a presentation targeting issues relevant to those soon entering the engineering profession. In addition, AMTA will host a hands-on Student Day Design Contest. This will give students an opportunity to show off their engineering skills to recruiters (students should bring their resumes!) and have fun at the same time.
Banquet wine sponsored by the Microwave Vision Group (MVG)
The AMTA 2023 Awards Banquet Reception will take place in the Lake Washington Ballroom pre-function space and the Awards Banquet will be held in the Lake Washington Ballroom. Enjoy dinner with wine, plus you may come away with a great bingo prize!
