Grupo de Antenas, Radar y Comunicaciones Ópticas

We are a leading research group in the area of electromagnetism. Our scope covers antenna design and measurement, computational electromagnetism, EMC, radar, millimiter waves applications, electro-optics and quantum information technology.

Electromagnetic design

SC7-B Team has used its own tools to realise the electromagnetic configuration integral design (including radiating systems design, EMC, EMI, and EMR design, calculation of levels and dangerous zones of electromagnetic exhibition for the crew and rest of electronic systems) in the constructed ships of the Spanish Navy during the 10 years last at the shipyard of NAVANTIA company. Similar studies have been carried out in already existing units of the Navy, some of which are mentioned next.
