ANTENNAS CASE STUDIES, WHITE PAPERS, & APPLICATION NOTES
Conformal Antenna Array Design on a Missile Platform
Applications ranging from communications to RADAR and even medical devices depend on antenna arrays. Hand calculations successfully facilitate the construction of stand-alone arrays; however, what happens when the mounting platform becomes a part of the radiating system?
Installed Performance of Communication Antenna Arrays
CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® is an electromagnetic simulation software ideal for a wide variety of applications. This white paper discusses how the software can be used to accurately predict where omnidirectional stacked bicone antenna arrays should be installed in order to minimize omnidirectional loss. This is particularly crucial in towers with multiple communication antennas, as they may have to be installed in sub-optimal positions.
Antenna Structure Analysis, EM.Cube Vs. Others
In this article, we will review the performance of EM.CUBE’s EM.Picasso Planar MOM solver, and EM.CUBE’s EM.Tempo FDTD solver in the analysis of three antenna designs. We will look at the accuracy of the results compared against the measured results, as documented in “A Practical Guide to 3D Electromagnetic Software Tools”1. We will also review EMCUBE’s performance against other simulation tools.
Optimization of a Reflector Antenna System
This white paper provides detail on how CST’s STUDIO SUITE® design/simulation software provided a workflow to optimize a reflector antenna system without having to simulate the complete model. This was made possible through the SAM (System Assembly and Modeling) feature of the design software. Download the white paper to see how it helped design, simulate, and optimize a reflector antenna system for a wide frequency band.
