Join the 9th IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Antenna Design Contest! Design and build a radio system to sound a radio channel in real time localize the position of a hidden transmitter. The top 6 teams will receive up to US $2,500 in travel funds to attend the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium in Boston, Massachusetts, July 8-13, 2018 to demonstrate their working systems. From these 6 teams, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced at the 2018 IEEE AP-S Awards Presentation at the conference and will receive cash awards of US$1,500, $750 and $250, respectively. Final reports will have the opportunity to be considered for publication in the IEEE AP Magazine. Important deadlines are November 24, 2017 and March 30, 2018.
The team should consist of 2 to 5 students, with at least 50% being undergraduate students. For a 5-year Bachelor-cum-Master degree program, students in years 1 to 3 are considered undergraduates. Each team should be advised by a professional mentor who is a member of the IEEE AP-S, but the work needs to be done primarily by the students. No student or mentor should be involved in more than one team.
Send all questions and materials to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “2018 IEEE AP-S Design Contest.” Messages without this subject line may not be received. All submitted materials must be in PDF format according to the guidelines above.
The transmitter characteristics are as follows. Transmitter characteristics will be finalized after selection of finalists.
