Radio Frequency (RF) Systems

Radio-frequency (RF) electronics and systems is the application of transmission lines, waveguides, electronics, antennas and electromagnetic fields to the design and application of devices that produce or utilize signals within the radio band.

This includes almost everything that transmits or receives a radio wave, like mobile phones, radios, Wi-Fi, radar, weather monitoring, surface detection, autonomous vehicles and power electronics.

A key part of our work is to enable innovators to source, understand and utilise available technologies. We also help innovators discover and access funding, and to network and create collaborations to fast track ideas and opportunities.

Our team has a deep expertise covering topics including radio frequency electronics, satellite communications, Agri-Tech coma and machines, radar, high frequency communications, manufacturing, mobility, power electronics, robotics, mobility, GHz comms, 4G, 5G, 6G and more.
