The expertise in MESA Solutions derives from sustained academic research on electromagnetic projects and metrology going back to the 1980's. MESA Solutions has been involved in: EMI mitigation and EMC management of South Africa's Square Kilometre Array Demonstrator: MeerKAT; interference analysis and remediation on numerous small and large scale systems; corona interference reduction measures on high voltage power lines; sparking detection on power lines; EMC facility validation; general study of high frequency cabling systems. MESA is additionally interested in providing pertinent instruction to industry and has prepared short course and laboratory material for this purpose.
