    §  Specified and designed a 2.4 GHz telemetry data link used to transmit 80Mbps of raw SAR data from a small manned aircraft at a maximum distance of 5Km.

    §  Designed the RF blocks of the Transmitter and receiver, down to the PCB and component level (LNA’ s, Power Amplifiers, VCO’ s, AGC’ s, filters).

    §  Fabricated, tested and integrated the RF sub-units into machined aluminum housings.

    §  Interfaced with partners from Fraunhofer FHR and IAF (Germany), Propatria Electronics (Hungary) and Warsaw University (Poland) and provided various test reports and measurement data for the telemetry link performance. Organized design reviews and formal progress reporting meetings.

    APIS

    §  Performed a series of full-wave EM simulations (in HFSS) to investigate the antenna tradeoffs and decide on which type of antenna to use for the best impact on system performance.

     

    1. Participated in the  following Research Promotion Foundation Programs:

    Design and Implementation of a Novel Wireless Receiver Chain Using Metamaterial Quad Band Devices

    §  Created a new design methodology for the fabrication of quad-band microwave metamaterial devices. This methodology was then used to design and fabricate a quad-band receiver chain consisting of a coupler, mixer and antenna, to demonstrate that metamaterial devices can be used for multiband systems with significant hardware and cost savings.

    Super-resolution microwave imaging with metamaterial lenses

    §  Fabricated the first metamaterials ever built in Cyprus using state of the art PCB fabrication facilities and designed, prototyped and tested a microwave quad-band power divider using Negative-Refractive-Index Transmission-Line unit cells.
