Latest Developments

Wide-Band Comb Generator

MESA is currently developing a wide and comb generator that can be be used for a variety of applications including characterisation of shielding effectiveness. The overall operational frequency range will be from 50 MHz up to 12 GHz with output power ranging between -12 dBm to -30 dBm. This output power can be further increased depending on the application.

UAV Measurements Platform

MESA Solutions along with Stellenbosch University and the South African SKA Office is developing a fixed-wing UAV and real-time scanning device as part of a research project. The aim is is to create an measurement platform that can assist in larger scale RFI characterisation and propagation analysis. Given the UAV's 3 kg payload capability and a flight time close to 2 hours, it can be used for a variety of measurement or scanning instrumentation.
