The AMTA Boot Camp is a 1-day course on antenna and related measurement fundamentals. Live hands-on demonstrations complement the material presented. The Boot Camp is an ideal training opportunity for those new to the antenna and related measurements community and for those who would appreciate an update or “refresher” course on these topics. Instructors are industry experts who were selected based not only on their expertise, but for their ability to communicate effectively.


The AMTA Boot Camp Back-to-Basics topics include:

  • General RF Measurements
  • Material Measurements
  • Antenna Measurements
  • RCS Measurements
  • EMC/EMI Measurements
