FULLY BOOKED - Radio Anechoic Chamber / DTU-ESA Spherical Near-Field Antenna Test Facility at Lyngby (North of Copenhagen)

Tuesday 17 March 2020
08:45: Bus departure from Bella Center
09:30: Arrival at DTU, Lyngby
10:30: Return departure
11:10: Arrival at the Bella Center
Maximum number of participants: 30

For  years, the Radio Anechoic Chamber / DTU-ESA Facility has been used  extensively both for in-house research projects and teaching purposes, and for very accurate near-field measurements and calibrations of antennas conducted in collaboration with and by external partners; in particular the European Space Agency, ESA.

The facility is a radio anechoic chamber intended for the determination of antenna characteristics in the frequency range from 300 MHz - 60 GHz. It is 14m long, 12m wide and 10m high (measured between the tips of absorbers).  The chamber and control room are enclosed in RF shielding.

DTU-ESA Spherical Near-Field Antenna Test Facility is a European Space Agency external reference laboratory for high-accuracy antenna testing operated by the Technical University of Denmark.

FULLY BOOKED - FORCE Technology at Hørsholm (North of Copenhagen)

Contact EuCAP secretariat team at email, if you want to book this tour.

Wednesday 18 March 2020
08:30: Bus departure from Bella Center
09:30: Arrival at Force Technology, Hørsholm
12:00: Return departure
13:00: Arrival at the Bella Center
Maximum number of participants: 40

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is essential for all electronic systems, including wireless communication systems and Internet-of-Things. FORCE Technology is Scandinavia’s leading technological service company, covering a broad range of services. At FORCE Technology we perform accredited compliance testing and certification against international regulatory for a wide range of industry segments such as: Industrial machinery, wireless communication systems, medical devices, military equipment, space electronics, automotive electronics and many more. In addition to regulatory testing, FORCE Technology excels in, and is a strong proponent of, extreme testing to ensure the reliability of the product under test and that the product not only meets, but exceeds, all existing standards – to ensure intended operation even in extreme environments. Last but not least, we have a large selection of IoT components and systems.

It is thought, that the visit to FORCE Technology will be of particular interest to Tech Tours participants interested in an introduction to EMC tests and compliance. Most notably do-it-yourself pre-testing, accredited testing and accelerated/extreme testing which entails testing at very high levels of electromagnetic noise. Moreover, those with an interest in how wireless connects to IoT components and systems will benefit from the visit to FORCE Technology.

FORCE Technology enjoys being CB test lab (CBTL) and CB national certification body (NCB). To this end, FORCE Technology can make CB-certified reports.

FULLY BOOKED - ESS, the European Spallation Source at Lund, Sweden (North of Malmö)

Please observe the following – participants must bring a valid ID, such as:

  • Passport from a country in the Schengen region, or
  • Passport with a visa to the Schengen region, or
  • For Danish citizens: a driver's license.

For countries of the Schengen region see

Thursday 19 March 2020
12:45: We meet at the bus – remember passport/visa
12:50: Bus departure from Bella Center
13:45: Arrival to ESS
17:00: The bus leaves ESS
17:50: Return at the Bella Center
Maximum number of participants: 23 

The European Spallation Source – which is under construction on the outskirts of Lund, Sweden - will both greatly exceed and complement those of today's leading neutron sources. It can be compared to a giant microscope for the study of different materials on nanoscale. The neutrons are generated by bombarding a helium-cooled tungsten target with protons from the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built.

ESS is a large scale research facility with many interesting features not commonly considered by the community. The visit will focus on RF aspects of the linear particle accelerator (high power clystrons and beam control systems). ESS is still under construction, with machines currently being installed in the linear accelerator.
