- About Us
The Microwave Vision Group (MVG) designs, manufactures and sells technologically advanced measurement solutions for electromagnetic fields. More and more industries are integrating wireless technologies into their businesses, and measurement methods are continuously evolving. To meet this rapid evolution, the MVG is actively investing in R&D activities to create new products, upgrade and enhance existing products, and acquire technological knowledge for future applications.
- Create new products
In 2009, ORBIT/FR and SATIMO launched “hybrid” products for antenna measurements. This new technology combines ORBIT/FR positioners with SATIMO probe arrays. An example is our hybrid solution for planar measurements called T-DualScan(used for highly directive antennas such as satellite or phased array antennas).
This new product, also available as an upgrade to existing planar test ranges, allows you to benefit from the advantages of multi-probe technology, previously available only for spherical or cylindrical measurements.
- Upgrade and enhance existing products
Our customers invest in long-life facilities and need to upgrade their measurement systems on a regular basis. In order to meet this requirement, we continuously adapt our products. This is common in telecommunication protocols, such as WiMAX. The measurement methodology of new protocols is discussed in working groups such as the WiMAX forum. The new ways of performing measurements influences the way our measurement systems, both hardware and software, will evolve. We actively participate in several standardization committees to ensure continuous product development for our customers. For example, since 2009, SG systems have been supporting A-GPS telecommunication protocols.
- Long-term R&D projects
The Microwave Vision Group is partnering with public research agencies and private partners to develop tomorrow’s technologies. Our research is oriented to two complementary fields: research on antennas and research on measurements. This provides a strong, comprehensive view of the industry.
One example is our current work on the project “probant”. The idea is to develop electromagnetic field measurement systems that will allow you to “see” through a wall for security applications.
