  1. Wind Turbines And Aircraft In The Presence Of Ground Clutter
    7/14/2017

    This short animation shows predicted RCS from an air traffic control radar with an aircraft flying over a wind farm, before and after the static ground clutter (returns from terrain) are filtered out. A basic filter has then been applied to remove the portions of returns with 0-Doppler (static clutter from the ground and wind turbine towers) to approximate what a radar might see after attempting to filter out objects not in motion. Although actual radars have much more sophisticated signal processing, this basic before/after animation of RCS from subsequent scans shows the problem that standard Doppler filtering would encounter when processing returns from a wind farm.

  2. Tuning A Microstrip Lens In Rotman Lens Designer (RLD) And Options For Importing To XFdtd
    7/14/2017

    In this video, a Remcom engineer walks through the steps to set up and tune a Ku Band microstrip lens in Rotman Lens Designer (RLD). We populate the physical, electrical, and transmission line properties and analyze the performance of the lens by plotting the array factor and beam to array phase error. This data helps us to further tune the lens by adjusting the focal ratio and beam port excitation, and then we export the S-Parameters. Finally, we discuss the various options for exporting the file and importing into XFdtd EM Simulation Software, including the use of a customized script. The script import method automatically sets up the ports and also includes the material properties.
