Event Description

Radar Cross Section & Antenna Placement on a Ship at Sea

Due to the size and complexity of a Navy ship at sea, proper calculation of radar cross section and of antenna coverage has long been elusive. This webinar will show how, with hybrid numerical methods available today, it has become possible. The practical pros and cons of various methods are introduced, after which results for a broad frequency range will be shown, up to many GHz for a realistic large Navy frigate.

The Characteristic Mode Analysis (CMA) Advantage

In this webinar we cover some of the theory of CMA, as well as present several new case studies highlighting the CMA design advantage. These include optimum feeding and placement of antennas on platforms and decoupling of antenna elements in a MIMO configuration.

Radomes with Frequency Selective Surfaces

Radomes (radar domes) are used in a wide variety of applications - satellites, broadcast,weather, communications,telemetry, tracking, surveillance and radio astronomy. In this webinar we present a complete solution for the design and analysis of radomes.  We also discuss in detail the challenges and the solutions to the design and analysis of Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) radomes.
