Metrology for optical and RF communication systems
Research Project , 2013 – 2015

The Digital Agenda for Europe strategic targets require upgrading of the communication platforms. This SRT calls for metrology support to be developed for a range of communication technologies across the network to aid the required research and development work within Europe. Research areas include traceable waveform metrology for terabit optical transport employing spectrally efficient coherent communication, efficient testing of satellites, radio-over-fibre (RoF) for last-mile deployment and over-the-air (OTA) testing of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna systems and dynamically reconfigurable antenna systems.
