IDS Ingegneria Dei Sistemi and EMA will participate at the HEART 2017 (Hardened Electronics And Radiation Technology) conference from the 24th to the 28th of April in Denver. At the event, IDS and EMA consulting and subject matter expertise for space and radiation environments will be discussed.  

System designers need electronics and platforms to operate without damage or upset in harsh environments. EMA and IDS Ingegneria Dei Sistemi have integrated advanced simulation tools as well as practical CAE modules into EMA3D and Galileo-EMT, available worldwide from both companies. The suite is backed by PhD experts with subject matter expertise on Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and High Power Microwave (HPM), Space Plasma Surface Charging, Internal Space Charging, Space Environment RF Performance. In particular:

  • Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and High Power Microwave (HPM) - EMA3D is a time domain full-wave solver that was developed specifically to assess the high-altitude EMP and HPM coupling to systems and cable harnesses. The tool can model gamma-ray interactions with air that are important for understanding the man-survivable region.
  • Space Plasma Surface Charging - EMA3D has a module to performing the meshing, model re-use, and user-interface capabilities to interface a popular surface charging solver.
  • Internal Space Charging - EMA3D has a module that predicts the high-energy electron penetration in spacecraft dielectrics and subsequently simulates the E-field of materials. The solver is fully 3D, with accuracy benefits over the typical 1D analysis approaches.
  • Space Environment RF Performance – IDS Galileo-EMT has unique features developed for the analysis of the space environment, including the RF propagation in the presence of space plasmas, thruster plumes and electrostatic discharges. The framework has an oversized cavity theory module to calculate the coupling to cavities up to 40 GHz.
