Great success for MEET 2016! The conference, in its first edition, has brought together over a hundred experts within the scientific field of electromagnetic engineering technology. Engineers, companies' managers, high ranks of the Italian defence community, professors, scientists from Italy, Belgium, China, Denmark, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, South Africa, Sweden, U.K., U.S.A. have shared their knowledge and discussed the state-of-the-art and future development of EME technology. The first day was held at the prestigious Institute of Military Aeronautical Sciences (ISMA – Istituto di Scienze Militari Aeronautiche) location in Florence, and then at the IDS headquarters in Pisa.

“Real-life innovations” are leveraging new products and services. Most of these are based on completely new technology applications: wireless communication, sensor based applications and the Internet of Things, autonomous cars/vehicles/drones, fast automation applications. In recent years, technological progress in electromagnetic science through enhancements in software and numerical techniques, in the integration of “physical testing/measuring” with simulation/virtual testing, and more has allowed significant advancement to be made in the field of Electro-Magnetic Engineering (EME) and has expanded the range of applications. This progress includes improvements in the basic modelling algorithms through the use of acceleration methods, optimized simulation tools using surface response algorithms and the increasing use of High Performance Computing (HPC). New synergies have also been created between modelling and measurement techniques, significantly improving the accuracy, effectiveness and interoperability of both. The time to market and development costs of products have been reduced through the inclusion of fast-prototyping tools in the design process. In addition, procedures for meta-material based devices, from design to manufacturing, testing and qualification, have been developed to complete the loop in creating innovative solutions.

In this context, MEET 2016 has achieved its goal to facilitate collaboration among industry and academic experts allowing them to share the latest cutting edge aspects of EME technology through the use of real-case applications from around the world and to introduce various virtual and physical testing systems. A sincere thank you to all the speakers, the participants and to the MEET 2016 patrons and sponsors: ENAC, AID, Brigata RISTA-EW, ENAV, AIAD, AIDAA, NAFEMS, MIMOS (patrons); Eurotech, EMA, TT Tecnosistemi, Nice, Pasquali Microwave Systems, Microlease (sponsors).

 

The "Galileo" CAE suite has been previewed today at MEET 2016. "Galileo" is the final outcome of thirty-years of IDS’s experience in the field of electromagnetics, involving both physical and virtual testing. The suite offers a comprehensive set of CAE products for electromagnetic engineering that have been validated over the years through extensive testing and measurement. The wide range of available solutions allows the user to select the most effective and efficient tool for each phase of the electromagnetic design process as well as for any specific problems.

A conference dedicated to electromagnetic engineering technology

Offering a meeting platform between industries, universities and research institutes: this is the aim of the MEET 2016 – Meeting on Electromagnetic Engineering Technology - , a three-day event on the electromagnetic engineering world. The technical conference, in its first edition, will be held from the 12th to the 14th of October in Florence and in Pisa.

MEET 2016 is organized by IDS Ingegneria Dei Sistemi S.p.A. The first day will take place at the Institute of Military Aeronautical Sciences (ISMA – Istituto di Scienze Militari Aeronautiche) in Florence and will then move to the IDS headquarters in Pisa for the next two days. It will be full of round-tables, technical sessions and real-case applications. The central topic of the conference, which will include experts from industry, universities and defense, will be the latest developments in electromagnetic engineering as used in many fields, from Internet of Things technologies to automotive, from aerospace to the naval sector.

 “IDS Ingegneria Dei Sistemi S.p.A. has been working in the field of electromagnetic engineering since it was first founded in 1980” said Giovanni Bardelli, IDS President and CEO. “We have always aimed to be at the forefront of technology, putting a lot of emphasis on research and development, both internally as well as through cooperative projects. We hope that MEET 2016 helps in this goal, by bringing together participants from academia, the electromagnetic engineering industry as well as key users of the technology such as the military, to discuss the current state-of-the-art, share best practices and experiences and discuss what possibilities could lie in the future.”

During MEET 2016 the “Franco Bardelli Award”, which has the purpose of promoting experts who have distinguished themselves for their scientific studies in the electromagnetic sector, will be presented by the “Franco Bardelli Foundation”.
