The primary means for military aircraft to avoid detection is to reduce the aircraft’s radar (RCS) and infrared (IR) signatures. IDS' Virtual Aircraft Framework (VIRAF) software delivers an integrated environment for signature management of aeronautical platforms, both at the component and system levels.
Due to its project/version data organization, streamlined workflows, input, output, settings and results history tracking, and the ability for multiple users to work on the same project, VIRAF is able to provide a full framework for the management of complex designs. It comprises tools to interface with most common commercial CAD software, and includes advanced meshing tools to generate numerical models used by the signature prediction codes. The framework includes VIRAF-RCS for the prediction of RCS, and VIRAF-IR for the prediction of the IR signature.
