The €1.5 million facility, which has received €638,000 funding from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), is part of CONNECT - the world-leading SFI Research Centre for Future Networks and Communications.
“This facility will provide industry in Ireland and across Europe, as well as academics, a rare and valuable capability to develop new technologies, and also to explore exciting questions in radio physics and engineering. We look forward to RadioSpace being a catalyst for increased collaboration between academia and industry, nationally and internationally”, commented Professor Ronan Farrell, Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering and Director of RadioSpace.
RadioSpace is a collaboration between the Radio Systems research team in the Department of Electronic Engineering and the Radio Astronomy team in the Department of Experimental Physics at Maynooth University, it consists of a space for the construction and design of radio-enabled electronics and devices, and a large shielded facility for the test of these devices without interference to regular users.
