Purpose and goal

The aim of this project is to renew the research collaboration between Qamcom and the Antenna Group at Chalmers. We also aim at increasing Roberts academic merits for future needs of both Chalmers and Qamcom. The project goals are: 1. To, in collaboration with the 12 SILIKA ESRs, fabricate a successful Ka-band massive MIMO demonstrator. 2. To increase our understand of possibilities, challenges and limitations of flat mm-wave antennas. 3. To strengthen Robers academic merits with a long terms goal of making him an associate professor of the antenna group.

Expected results and effects

We believe that this Project can bring further collaborations between the two organizations. Qamcom has future Commercial projects planned that will greatly benefit from the outcome of the project. These cannot be disclosed at the moment due to commercial reasons. Our intention is to make Roberts adjoint position permanent and in the long run an adjoint professor. We also think that the master thesis project holds great opportunity for Chalmers to later hire the student as a PhD student.

Planned approach and implementation

In SILIKA, a demonstrator based on the MATE test-bed 4 (available at Chalmers) will be built. Robert will act as coordinator and system integration manager, supporting the 12 ESRs in these tasks. We plan to assign a master student that Robert will supervise. In this project the student will work on flat wide-band mm-wave antennas. This is an important topic for Qamcom. There are several challenges that needs to be addressed. Robert is a reverberation chamber (RC) expert and will assist in the Chalmers course Antenna Engineering, given during spring 2018.
