So what is student day
So what is student day?

AMTA has a long standing tradition of encouraging young engineers to become involved in antenna engineering and the related disciplines. A key component of this effort is Student Day, held on Tuesday during AMTA's annual conference. Student Day is an opportunity for local college students to get a taste of the profession by interacting with practicing engineers in a variety of venues throughout the day.

This year will be no exception, as the students will again have an opportunity to tour the vendor exhibits, sit in on papers, and enjoy a free dinner and presentation targeting issues relevant to those about to enter the engineering profession. In addition, we also have an exciting new activity we've been contemplating - a Student Day Design Contest.

Student Day – a Small Taste

A New Paradigm…

“Who doesn't like a little friendly competition, especially when there is prize money at stake! Well, get ready to put some of that book learning into practice. AMTA 2013 will host a Student Day Design Contest targeted at those local students attending the conference. Here's an opportunity to show off your engineering skills to those recruiters (don't forget to bring your resumes) and have fun at the same time.”

… a tutorial capped with an on-site design competition using vendor supplied equipment (and interaction) to excite our future AMTA members!

Tutorial rcs 101 the art of invisible
Tutorial: “RCS 101-The Art of Invisible”

Here’s what you will get…

  • an introduction to the basic concept of radar cross section in a way that is both informative and entertaining

  • a taste of electromagnetic (EMAG) theory, radar, metrology, and test design concepts

  • all the tools you’ll need to dominate the competition during the design challenge

  • an opportunity to apply what you learned in a way you’ll never forget

…but wait, there’s more!

The design challenge
The Design Challenge

This iswhat you will do…

  • Work in teams to design, implement and test* modifications to a scaled model car to reduce its RCS over the forward and rear sectors

  • Pull together the concepts presented in the tutorial and apply them to meet or exceed the specifications

  • Demonstrate theeffectiveness of your modifications









*State-of-the-art radaralong with expert guidance will be provided for the diagnostic and specification compliance measurements.



What is involved

RCS Reduction Process

  • Use instrumentation RADAR to evaluate car RCS baseline

  • ISAR diagnostic images identify scattering contributors

  • Apply RCS reduction techniques

  • Use RADAR to measure specification compliance

…now is the time to demonstrate what you’ve learned and grab the prize!
