Philippines, Japan on R&D of wireless communications
In line with its mandate as one of the research and development institutes (RDI) of the Department of Science and Technology, the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI) continuously works toward building local and international linkages for research collaborations on electronics and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
Last 4 July 2019, the Philippines through the DOST-ASTI, University of the Philippines Diliman- Diliman Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (UP-EEEI), and the Technical Committee on Antennas and Propagation of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers, hosted the Philippines-Japan Workshop on Wireless, Radio and Antenna Technologies. Conducted at DOST-ASTI's office in Diliman, Quezon City, the workshop aimed to provide a venue for the exchange of information on the progress of R&D in wireless communications systems. The workshop was another opportunity to enhance the rapport between the Philippines and Japan.
Six (6) Japanese and four (4) Filipino researches presented their respective studies during the one-day workshop. They also answered and entertained queries related to their researches from the audience after their presentations.
The researchers also had the chance to tour around the Philippine Earth Data Resource and Observation (PEDRO) Center Facilities housed in the DOST-ASTI office, led by the Dr. Marciano and Science Research Specialist Joven C. Javier-- both part of the team that developed Maya-1 nanosatellite.
The speakers were awarded a plaque of appreciation as a recognition to their significant contributions on the fields of antennas, propagation, radio frequency and wireless communications systems.
The Advanced Science and Technology Institute is an agency of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-ASTI) mandated to undertake research and development activities aimed at strengthening and modernizing Information and Communications Technology and microelectronics. The DOST-ASTI continues to dedicate itself to delivering technology solutions in support of a productive and resilient Filipino society.
