Doctoral student Henri Kähkönen integrates antenna arrays and microcircuits made possible by millimeter-wave technology. In addition to wireless data transmission, the technology enables the development of radars for the needs of the automotive and healthcare industries. 

Saab's help has been key to advancing research. Among other things, Kähkönen has been able to use a state-of-the-art 3D printing device, which makes it possible to make an accurate and high-quality metallic antenna array prototype. He has also been able to discuss key research issues with Saab engineers.

'Saab's experts have helped us in advancing the research and opened up new perspectives on what is required of future antenna technology,' says Kähkönen.
