QuadSAT’s Senior RF Engineer Dr.-Ing. Cosme Culotta-López will be serving as a Technical Coordinator on the Board of Directors of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) from January 2022. Cosme has been an active member of AMTA since 2017 and has been awarded with Best Paper Awards from AMTA in 2019 and 2021.
AMTA) is a non-profit, international organization dedicated to the development and dissemination of theory, best practices and applications of antenna, radar signature and other electromagnetic measurement technologies.
Cosme’s plans, according to his position statement, will specifically focus on academia, engaging with the research community in universities and other public research institutions to further involvement with AMTA. It is hoped that increasing exposure and reach will benefit those students already specializing in this area, as well as increasing the number of students who choose to enter this field. Ultimately this will help to further secure the future of both AMTA and the industry.
Cosme Culotta-López, Senior RF Engineer at QuadSAT, commented: "The strength of AMTA lies in the different sectors it brings together, namely academia, government, industry and other commercial entities. I first came to AMTA as a student and academic researcher. It has enabled me to co-operate with several industry partners, which proved itself not only extremely useful for my research, but also for my understanding of industry demands. Joining the Board of Directors means that I can now give back to the AMTA community and encourage other students into this field.”
Cosme joined QuadSAT in June 2021 as Senior RF Engineer. His main area of focus is researching antenna measurement techniques using drone technology. He has received Best Student Paper awards on multiple occasions for his research in spherical near-field antenna measurements and compressed Sensing. In 2014 he received an Engineering degree in telecommunications engineering from the University in Málaga, Spain and in 2021 his doctoral degree (summa cum laude) from RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
