Antenna systems can be found in wireless applications within communication, sensors or power transmission, for instance.

Chase, which was one of Vinnova’s outstanding VINN Excellence Centres, made enormous progress in the field of antenna systems, but it faced new challenges over time. There are still challenges that need to be addressed where current antenna systems are not always sufficiently cost-effective, they do not offer sufficient performance or, perhaps, they are not sustainable from an energy resource perspective.

The new VINN ChaseOn Excellence Centre will be tackling challenges in the fields of communication, sensor systems and healthcare and will be working on microwave electronics in partnership with the new GHz centre at Chalmers University of Technology. This partnership is extremely important for developing the use of higher frequency bands as the lower bands are rapidly filling up. , the higher frequency bands will allow large data volumes to be transmitted rapidly thanks to larger bands of clear frequencies. This is a field wireless technology (such as 5G).

ChaseOn’s vision is to be a world leading supplier of antenna system research and technologies for a competitive industry and a sustainable society.

As part of ChaseOn, RISE will be focusing on antenna systems for vehicle to vehicle communication and vehicle to infrastructure communication for the new technologies.

The objective is to develop antenna system design and characterisation methods for 5G vehicles, above and below 6 GHz.

Partnership: Chalmers University of Technology (project owner), RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, Ampleon, Bluetest, Elektra Instrument, Ericsson, Food Radar, Keysight Technologies, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Medfield Diagnostics, Quamcon, Ruag Space, Saab, Smarteq Wireless, Volvo Car Corp and Region Västra Götaland.
