Aurora Software and testing, SL is a technology-based SME whose main line of business is the development of CAD tools for analysis, synthesis and design of passive microwave components.
The Polytechnic University of Valencia
The software implemented by the company is based on advanced numerical algorithms for electromagnetic analysis, with high excellence in synthesis methods and prediction of high power discharge effects like Corona and Multipactor.
Also, thanks to the know-how acquired over the years by the highly qualified staff of the company, Aurorasat offers consulting to its clients services in the design of passive microwave components with special emphasis on components subjected to high power conditions.
The company emerged from the two universities in the city of Valencia keeping a very close collaboration: the University of Valencia Estudi General and the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
is a higher education institution, mainly devoted to teaching, research and technology transfer to local, national and international companies. This University is recognized as one of the best institutions in Spain for studying Architecture or Engineering. Currently, its 39,000 members are distributed as follows: 35,000 students, 2,387 professors and researchers, and 1,593 administrative staff. The research activity is developed in departments and research institutes.
The Microwave Applications Group (GAM) is part of the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM), and is located in the new Polytechnic City of Innovation on the campus of Vera (Valencia). The main research activity of this group is focused on the development of techniques for analysis, synthesis and design of passive microwave components for space systems. Recently, this group has focused its research on theoretical and experimental study of rupture phenomena in high-power systems aboard satellites.
Valencia University Estudi General (UVEG)
is an old institution founded in 1499, which has achieved great national and international reputation in the areas of humanities, technology and science. Currently, the UVEG is composed of 60,000 members: 55,000 students and 5,000 staff members. The UVEG is one of the top universities in Spain and today has 19 faculties offering over 67 degrees in different disciplines. The UVEG is organized in faculties, departments and research institutes.
The Guides and Optical Fiber Group is a research group at the UVEG. The group, officially founded in 1985, currently conducts research in: passive microwave components, microwave photonics, optical fiber sensors based on optical fibers and crystal optical fibers.
