This webinar lecture addresses how to design antennas for practical systems. Antennas play a key role in any communications system. They need to meet several systems requirements simultaneously. The design of these systems becomes difficult, time-consuming, and often results in non-optimal solutions if you do not start with fundamental design principles and do not understand the hardware. This talk will brief how to properly design these complex antennas from fundamental principles and proper choice of antenna for given requirements quickly. Various types of antennas are discussed initially, and hardware examples are provided. A few videos are shown explaining the complexity and importance of antenna systems for space, air, and ground applications.

Biography:

Dr. Sudhakar Rao is the president & CEO of RaoS Consultants LLC providing technical consultancy to several companies in USA, Canada, Europe & India. Over the past 47 years of his professional career, he worked at Northrop Grumman Space Systems (2010-2022), Lockheed Martin (2003-2010), Boeing Satellite Systems (1996-2003), Spar Aerospace Ltd, Montreal (1983-1996), University of Manitoba (1982-1983), University of Trondheim, Norway (1981-1982), LRDE, Bangalore (1980-1981), IIT Madras (1977-1979) and ECIL, Hyderabad (1976-1977). He developed and successfully implemented antenna payloads for 90 different satellites and 10 aircraft, vehicular and ground communications programs. Dr. Rao’s work on development of radiation templates for complex satellite antenna patterns for interference analysis was adopted and recommended by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU)/CCIR in 1992 as the world-wide standard for satellite manufacturers and operators. He authored over 230 technical papers and was awarded 58 patents (51 US & 7 European) and 5 trade secrets. His fundamental work on the design of multiple beam antennas in 1999 has been used by satellite industry world-wide. He authored and co-edited three textbook volumes on “Handbook of Reflector Antennas and Feed Systems” that were published in June 2013 by the Artech House.

Dr. Rao is an IEEE Life Fellow, a Fellow of IETE, and a Life Fellow of WAMSS. He received several awards including the IEEE Benjamin Franklin Key Award in 2006, Delaware Valley Engineer of the Year in 2008, Asian American Engineer of the year award in 2008, IEEE Judith Resnik Technical Field Award in 2009 for pioneering work in aerospace engineering, Boeing’s Special Invention awards in 2001 & 2002, Lockheed Martin’s President Award in 2005, IEEE Region 6 Outstanding Engineer Award for 2017 and the 2017 Northrop Grumman’s President Award for innovations and contributions to key programs. He received the Distinguished Alumni Professional Achievement Award from his alma mater NIT Warangal in 2016, IETE’s Prof. S.N. Mitra Memorial Award in 2016, and the 2020 IETE’s Biman Behari Sen Memorial Award. Dr. Rao served as the Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE APS and as an AdCom member for IEEE APS. He was the founder and Chair for the IEEE APS “Industry Initiatives Committee” during 2011-2015, IEEE APS Fellow Evaluation Committee member during 2015-2017, founder and Editor of the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Magazine’s “Antenna Applications Corner”, Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas & Propagation, and Associate Editor of IEEE AWPL. He is the founding member of the WAMS series of conferences in India.  Dr. Rao delivered invited, and keynote talks for more than 70 conferences world-wide. He served as the IEEE Fellow Committee member for 2020 & 2021 and is now serving for 2023 & 2024. He instituted IETE – Dr. Sudhakar Rao Award in 2020 to recognize and honor outstanding antenna engineers. Dr. Rao is the Distinguished Visting Professor at the IIITDM Kancheepuram since 2023.

Agenda

This webinar lecture addresses how to design antennas for practical systems. Antennas play a key role in any communications system. They need to meet several systems requirements simultaneously. The design of these systems becomes difficult, time-consuming, and often results in non-optimal solutions if you do not start with fundamental design principles and do not understand the hardware. This talk will brief how to properly design these complex antennas from fundamental principles and proper choice of antenna for given requirements quickly. Various types of antennas are discussed initially, and hardware examples are provided. A few videos are shown explaining the complexity and importance of antenna systems for space, air, and ground applications.

The second part of the talk deals with how to publish your research or development work and how to patent your idea. Technical publication in international journals is the dream of any student researcher, faculty, or industry professionals where you can get international recognition for your work. However, this requires a lot of preparation prior to paper submittal to any journal or conference. This talk explains key aspects of a good paper and what reviewers typically look into the paper when they review the contents. Invention is an important aspect of any one’s engineering career. Most companies and universities support inventions and patents. One patent is worth several publications and generally patents are more difficult to get than publications and takes about 3 years or more to get your patent awarded. This talk explains the patenting process and what is involved in submitting a good idea as a patent application. A few examples will be discussed. This talk is aimed at motivating students to become good engineers!
