Meeting the Challenges of the Millimeter Wave Radio Frequency Environment for 5G
Thursday, 26 October 2017 • 2:00 PM EDT, 11:00 AM PDT, 18:00 UTC/GMT
One of the primary challenges of 5G testing is both capturing information on the millimeter wave radio frequency environment as well as just understanding its operation. Both industry and academic research is still at an early phase of this work and for it to progress work must be done on a number of fronts in terms of test and measurement. For instance, better models are need to needed to address the different environments that will be encountered, such as urban environments. This webinar will examine the work that is being done in addressing these issues and some of the solutions that have been developed.

Theodore Grosch received his BS ‘82, MS ‘89, and Ph.D ‘93 in electrical engineering from The Pennsylvania State University. He worked at Hughes Aircraft Co., Space and Communications Division, and General Electric from 1982 to 1986 designing RF, microwave and MMW low noise amplifiers, mixers, and filters. He was President and CEO of a startup 1986 to 1992 that focused on automotive radar. He joined M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory in 1993 and researched ground penetration radar, ballistic missile defense, and active fuse systems until 2001. He designed cellular base station receivers and small-cell transceivers at Airvana, Inc. from 2001 to 2012. Since 2012, he has been a Lecturer at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell and is now an Assistant Professor at Kennesaw State University specializing on antenna design, radar systems, and embedded systems. His research topics are ultra-low noise techniques, crest factor reduction, and the Internet of Things.
