Antenna Cosite Interference Analysis for an UAV
Title: Antenna Cosite Interference Analysis in an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

Time: 8am PT, 11am ET, 5pm CET
Whenever we have multiple transmitters and receivers co-located on a common platform such as a UAV, we must take care to ensure that all systems operate as intended. The RF environment will be very dense and the probability of co-site interference high. Analysis plays an increasingly important role in identifying the cause of interference and ensuring compatibility between the various RF systems. Through a recent collaboration with Delcross Technologies and interfacing with their EMIT tool, CST is providing a complete workflow for true cosite analysis. This webinar presents the full workflow including rapid synthesis of antenna models, broadband antenna coupling analysis and prediction of interference between transceivers including effects such as spurious harmonics, intermodulation and radio de-sensitization.
David Johns is the VP of Engineering and Support at CST of America and is based in the Framingham MA office. He holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Nottingham University UK, specializing in the development and application of the TLM method. He has been actively involved in the modeling of EMC, EMI and E3 problems for over 20 years, presenting frequently in IEEE EMC conferences and chairing workshop tutorials.
Fred German is a Sr. Scientist and partner at Delcross Technologies where he is responsible for the develop of simulation tools for predicting and mitigating cosite interference. He holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Auburn University and has over 20 years experience in the development and application of computational electromagnetics and RF simulation tools. Prior to joining Delcross, he has held engineering positions at Raytheon, SAIC and Flomerics.
