Antennas on the Move - In Rockets, Planes, and Satellites!
April 11th
7:00 AM (2 days)
Hyatt Regency Lake Washington
Renton , WA

This program was designed by the IEEE Seattle EMC Chapter and the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) to bring the latest inspired technology to the Pacific Northwest on Antenna Design as well as Antenna, 5G, EMC, and Wireless Test and Measurement Techniques for industry applications.  Invited experts in industry, government, and academia will share practical information on various topics in an extended presentation format. This allows a thorough discussion of each topic and provides the opportunity for extended questions and answers. The “hands-on” quality of the presentations enables the registrant to learn useful information that can be used on the job – in the “real world.” 

Back by popular demand, the renowned Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), IEEE Fellow, will provide a four-hour “mini short course” to begin the program on April 11.  He will discuss “The Art, Science and Engineering of Modern Antennas: Measurements from Marconi’s First Measurements to Today’s Amazing Advances.”

Many exhibitors will showcase their latest offerings in 5G, Antenna and EMC related products and services on Tuesday, April 11; the day concludes with a networking "Happy Hour" reception. All pre-registered attendees and exhibitors are invited to attend and informally visit with the speakers and each other! 

On Wednesday morning, April 12, an interactive half-day workshop is planned complete with lectures and LIVE demos.  

In addition to the technical program, a technical tour is planned for Wednesday afternoon, April 12, 2023, following the workshop.  Registrants of the April 11-12 event are eligible to attend a technical tour of the newly opened Dual Robotic Antenna Measurement System (DRAMS) at Boeing Seattle.  Tour attendees will see Boeing’s “Antenna Lab of the Future” that enables dramatically faster, more accurate antenna testing results.  You can learn more about the DRAMS chamber herePlease note the tour is tentative at this point and will be held based upon sufficient interest.

See the complete technical program with daily schedule, speaker bios, presentation abstracts, venue/parking info, registration fees, and more at

If you are interested in reserving a tabletop display, please note tabletop spaces are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. See the Exhibitor and Sponsor Opportunities here for more information.


IEEE 802.11be/Extremely High Throughput (EHT)
April 11th
12:00 PM (1 hour)

IEEE 802.11be, which is also known as Wi-Fi 7, is the next amendment to the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless local area networks (WLAN). This amendment is anticipated to greatly enhance the performance of indoor and outdoor WLAN operations at both stationary and pedestrian speeds in the 2.4, 5, and 6 GHz frequency bands. Wi-Fi 7, also called Extremely High Throughput (EHT), is set to provide multi-gigabit Wi-Fi with faster speeds, less interference, and better performance for high-bandwidth online activities. The new standard is expected to achieve a theoretical maximum speed of 30 Gbit/s, which is a significant improvement from the previous standard, IEEE 802.11ax. In this talk, Laurent Cariou will deliver a high-level overview of the features that are defined in the upcoming standard. Additionally, he will briefly introduce the next activity in 802.11, known as Ultra High Reliability (UHR), which is expected to become Wi-Fi 8.



Laurent Cariou earned his Ph.D. in electronics from the National Institute of Applied Sciences in Rennes, France in 2003 and 2006, respectively. He has spent over a decade working in IEEE 802.11 and currently serves as Intel's principal engineer and technical lead for mainstream Wi-Fi in 802.11. Cariou played a key role in establishing the High-Efficiency WLAN (HEW) group that eventually led to the development of 802.11ax and Wi-Fi 6. Recently, he also initiated the Extremely High Throughput (EHT) activity. Currently, Cariou holds the position of vice-chair for the 11be/EHT task group (Wi-Fi 7) and is also the chair for the Ultra-High Reliability (UHR – Wi-Fi 8) study group.

Sensing in Nuclear Environment using Optical Fibers
April 20th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)

Nuclear reactors create a harsh environment for fuel and structural components as they operate at high temperatures and high irradiation and have corrosive components. Precise monitoring of the reactor's environment is an ever-present need for the long-term operation and stability of the reactor. The knowledge of the exact conditions is crucial for studying the degradation of fuel and components and improving their performance. There is a need to create novel sensing solutions to study and record the real-time conditions in and out of the pile in the reactor to study microstructure, chemistry, mechanical, and other property changes when subjected to irradiation. The temperature range of interest for the fuel and structural component community varies significantly, depending on the reactor technology evaluated. However, radiation hardness and survivability at high temperatures are two critical requirements of any technology proposed for monitoring temperature in such harsh environments. Optical sensors have the advantage of being immune to electromagnetic radiation and are ideally suited for the nuclear environment. Due to their small size, these sensors can easily be embedded within structures and components, providing crucial data regarding their performance and structural integrity. However, commercial silica-based optical sensors encounter radiation-induced attenuation, emission, and contraction and require novel engineering techniques to improve their signal reliability. This talk will present the advantages, challenges, and novel approaches of using optical fiber sensors inside a nuclear reactor.
