January 2011 — November 2013
The goal of the project was to develop a fast prediction model to accurately predict sidelobe levels in dual-offset reflector antennas. This was attempted by investigating near field effects left out by other fast approximations and combining this data with a database of simulation results. The project was specifically focused on the planned MeerKat and SKA telescope to be built in South Africa. After this project I feel I am now capable of independent learning.
