Phasor awarded €2 million EU grant for flat panel antenna

Phasor has been awarded a €2 million grant under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, to assist in the commercial development of the company’s flat panel antenna technology.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Horizon 2020 is the largest EU research and innovation programme ever, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over the seven years leading up to 2020. According to Phasor, the highly competitive programme awards grants to only one in every 20 applicants.

“We are honoured to have received this recognition, and award,” said David Helfgott, Phasor CEO.

“Phasor is dedicated to enabling mobile broadband communications.  Our patented modular and conformal technology allows true broadband service for the first time to almost any vehicle in motion, especially in remote areas.”

The electronic flat panel technology is being developed for applications in maritime, aviation and high speed rail. Phasor claims vessel operators will be able to create high gain antenna arrays with improved performance, resulting in higher speed broadband connectivity, at a lower installation and operating cost.

Initial products will operate in the Ku-band, but the company says it is also looking at possibilities in the Ka- and X-band frequencies.{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
