Chief Technology Officer
Mark Mezzapica commenced working at RF Industries in 1990 following 10 years of service in the Sydney Ports Authority as a radiocommunications network engineer. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) from the University of NSW and is a longstanding member of the IEEE.
During his early years at RFI Mark was responsible for the design of custom multicoupling and filtering solutions across a wide range of customer applications. The experience gained during this time gave him a unique insight into intermodulation issues and other interference mechanisms that can affect radio network performance, and he was then selected to contribute as an Australian Standards committee member in the development of a standard outlining suitable guidelines for the configuration of shared radiocommunications facilities.
Mark is now Chief Technology Officer at RFI and is responsible for a team of more than 30 multidisciplinary engineers involved in the company’s ongoing research and development programs covering antennas, and a wide range of active systems products.

WORKSHOP: ARCIA Professional Development Training workshop — multicoupling and filtering
This workshop will be presented by ARCIA as part of their Professional Development Training series. The workshop will be facilitated by Chris Stevens and presented by Mark Mezzapica, Chief Technology Officer, RFI Wireless. The workshop aims to provide industry professionals with targeted industry-specific training to enhance their professional learning and development pathways. At the completion of the workshop ARCIA will issue an attendance certificate that will recognise the individual’s participation in an ARCIA approved workshop and can value add to their skill set and resume. The workshop will contain theory and practical components focusing on design and performance of RF filtering systems and transmitter multicoupling systems, including practical demonstrations of tuning and other technical parameters.
Attendees will be issued with a workbook at the commencement of the workshop and will be required to hand it in at the completion of the session in order for ARCIA to evaluate the level of understanding the attendees have reached. The workbooks will be returned to each attendee soon after the conference, together with the certificate of completion. ARCIA will maintain a record of the attendee’s training involvement in each Professional Development module over time.
