CISAM 2015

29th October 2015, Pisa, Italy. The IDS Measurement Laboratory supported the Organizing Committee of the 2015 CISAM conference on IEMI entitled: "Le emissioni elettromagnetiche ad elevata potenza" (Electromagnetic High Power Radiations).

IDS presented two scientific contributions and also had a booth at the event.

FARAD Takes Part in NATO Trials

November 2013, Mazagón, Huelva, Spain. The IDS Measurement Laboratory has taken part in the NATO SET-180 trials operating the IDS FARAD Radar. The trials took place at the INTA CEDEA test range, one of the best test ranges in Europe, and saw the participation of several radars from various NATO countries, measuring a full range of different targets. The IDS Measurement Laboratory teamed up with the IDS Radar and Avionics Laboratory and the Aeronautical Division in preparing and performing this campaign. FARAD performed at its best on such a valuable opportunity to share its capabilities with the NATO R&D community.

NSN 2013

4th – 5th July, St. Petersburg, Russia. The IDS Measurement Laboratory in collaboration with the Naval Division will be presenting an original paper entitled "A Smart RCS Measurement Solution for Naval Vessels" at the NSN 2013 conference in St. Petersburg. The paper describes a fully-integrated, cost-effective, state-of-the-art, fully transportable and flexible measurement solution developed by IDS to fulfill the modern Radar Cross Section (RCS) requirement for ships.

Measurement of a very large VTS antenna

3rd July 2013, Pisa. The IDS Measurement Laboratory, supported by the ISD CEM Laboratory, recently completed the characterization of a 19ft VTS (Vessel Traffic Service) radar antenna in near field conditions. The antenna has been characterized in terms of gain and radiation pattern (0-360° in azimuth plane); this result exploits the capability of the IDS measurement chamber and measurement system, demonstrating the ability to measure even very large antennas in near field conditions. The antenna under test was provided by Consilium Italy Srl and is part of their VTS products range.

CISAM 2013

29th - 30th May 2013, Pisa, Italy. The IDS Measurement Laboratory is supporting the organizing committee of the upcoming CISAM conference on EMC entitled: "Sviluppi nella prevenzione e protezione dalle Radiazioni Ionizzanti e Non Ionizzanti" (Developments in the Prevention of and Protection against Ionizing and Non-Ionizing Radiation). IDS will also be present at the event with a booth. For more information please visit the website

IDS C.E.M and Measurement Laboratories to present a paper at the Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference

The IDS C.E.M. and Measurement Laboratories will be presenting a paper entitled “An Optimized Radar Reflector Antenna Pair for Field Testing” at the forthcoming Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference, which will take place on the 12th and 13th of November in Loughborough, UK. The paper is about the design and manufacturing of a dedicated antenna subsystem to be integrated in an RCS dynamic measurement system for full scale platforms. For further information on the conference, please visit their website here.

AMTA 2012

The IDS Measurement Laboratory is going to present a paper entitled “Dynamic RCS measurements with a Network Analyser” at the forthcoming AMTA 2012 conference, that will take place late October 2012 in Bellevue, Washington. The paper is about a low-cost, compact and flexible measurement solution developed by IDS and conceived to measure static targets, that has recently been upgraded to also perform dynamic measurement on full scale platforms.
