  • Alcatel, France.                               (WP 2.1.2 Leader)
  • University of Rennes, France (IETR)
  • University of Rome, La Sapienza, Italy
  • Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany
  • Instituto Superior T├ęcnico, Portugal
  • Helsinki University of Technology, Finland
  • Universite de Marne la Vallee, France
  • Universidad Polytecnica de Valencia, Spain
  • Universitaet Karlsruhe, Germany
  • University of Nice, France (LEAT)
  • BAE Systems, U.K

The following joint projects began in ACE I, are continuing

MM wave lens antennas, (IETR, IST), contactless coupling to MMICs, (UNIBHAM, TUD), reconfigurable pattern diversity antennas, (UNIBHAM, IETR)

The following delta research projects have been started
 
Terahertz antennas and devices, (TUD), MM wave technology for vehicles, (UNIBHAM, BAE), large mm wave antennas, (LEAT), lens feeds for mm wave CATR, (HUT), high efficiency active integrated antennas, (LA SAPIENZA), reconfigurable integrated antennas, (LEAT), reconfigurable antennas for diversity, (UMLV), MEMS reflectarray, (ALCATEL)

A strong collaboration with the AMICOM Network of Excellence has been established

A common project has been defined, namely design and realisation of a novel reflectarray with micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) on LTCC. The ACE partners involved are ALCATEL and EPFL and the AMICOM partners involved are VTT, LETI and IZM
