ACE (Antenna Centre of Excellence) is a Network of Excellence in the European 6th Framework Programme - IST (http://www.ist-ace.org).
ACE aims to structure the fragmented European antenna R&D, reduce duplications and boost excellence and competitiveness in key areas. ACE deals with the antenna function of radio systems.
ACE is focused on the electromagnetic interface from conductors to free space radiated waves, the beam-forming functions, whether they are analogue or digital, and adaptive "smart" systems to optimize communication systems performance.
This area contains information on the Activities that compose the ACE project (ACE-2 project, from 1st January 2006 to 31st December 2007).
