The Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) was formed in 1979, and incorporated in the state of Georgia, USA on March 10, 1989 as a non-profit professional organization open to individuals with an interest in antenna measurements.
Areas of interest include:
Unique or innovative measurement techniques
Test instrumentation and systems
Radar Cross Section (RCS) measurements
Compact range design and evaluation
Near-field techniques and their applications
Practical aspects of measurement problems and their solutions
Members come from a variety of backgrounds including industry, government, and educational institutions, and from many countries around the world. Membership has steadily grown from 30 in 1979 to about 500 members today.
The primary activity of AMTA is its annual symposium and business meeting. The symposium is generally one full week, usually held in October or November of each year, and attracts some 500 attendees. Approximately 100 technical papers are presented covering a wide range of antenna and RCS measurement techniques and technology advances. The papers are available on CD and online in the archival database. Tours of local measurement facilities also are arranged and are generally conducted on the last day of the symposium. The symposium also offers vendors the opportunity to exhibit their latest offerings in hardware, systems, and services.
In addition to the annual symposium and exhibition, AMTA hosts smaller, regional events each year throughout the United States on various aspects of antenna measurement. To read more about these events, click here.
