Invention Delivers Pure Location Signals for Q-Track

Huntsville, AL June 12, 2018 — The U.S. Patent Office today awarded U.S. patent 9,997,845 for an “Embedded symmetric multiple axis antenna system with isolation among the multiple axes,” to Q-Track inventors, Hans G. Schantz, Christopher D. Pittman, James L. Richards, and Stephen A. Werner. The Q-Track inventors discovered how to implement compact magnetic antenna arrays capable of detecting all three components of the magnetic field. Mutually orthogonal three-axis electrically-small magnetic antenna arrays are of great […]

Q-Track CTO Presents at Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference

Q-Track CTO, Dr. Hans G. Schantz is presenting a paper on “A simple procedure for measuring gain of very electrically small antennas” at the 2014 Loughborough Antenna and Propagation Conference. Gain measurements of very electrically small antennas (VESAs) present special challenges. These antennas radiate with poor efficiency, and great care is needed to make a suitable gain measurement using radiative techniques. This paper presents a novel gain measurement technique based upon the observation that the […]
