Leading RF planning tool, HTZ analyses the potential radiation hazards associated with radio base stations. With growing public concerns about exposure to high levels of EMFs, more and more radio network operators looking to analyse the impact of their frequency use.
To support this work, ATDI contributed to ITU published studies with the support of Dr Mazar, Spectrum management expert and Vice-Chair of the ITU-R Study Group 5 (terrestrial services) and ITU inter-sector coordinator on RF-EMF and co-rapporteur ITU-D. The studies covered:
Dr Haim Mazar rejoined the ATDI Group in June 2015.
HTZ Warfare / HTZ Communications
In order to assess the potential radiation hazard of the electromagnetic field around base stations, ATDI has incorporated functions into its flagship radio modelling tool, HTZ Communications/Warfare, which supports:

Case Study: EMF field strengths and heatmaps
To support a request for tender (RFT), ATDI were tasked with generating EMF field strengths and heat maps for a proposed 5G rollout. This sample study looked at one lamppost with two antenna options to understand the potential coverage, EMF exposure and associated heatmaps. Using a high-resolution map in HTZ Communications, the station parameters were imported to generate coverage calculations. A full case study will be made available in next month’s Newsletter.
