Antenna Design/Analysis


The Re-Entry Vehicle Toolbox from the IDS Computational Electromagnetic Laboratory has been integrated into the ADF-EMS v5.1 system. The software aims to provide a set of capabilities for the analysis and optimization of RF links between a re-entry vehicle and ground or satellite relay stations.

Antenna Magus is a new software tool to help engineers accelerate the antenna design and modelling process. It has a huge database of designed antennas which can be exported to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® for further analysis and optimization...

The Q-Net Satellite Bandwidth Manager is an open, scalable, fully-featured satellite resource management system utilizing new technology that combines unparalleled bandwidth-efficiency with flexible carrier management, and eliminates the choice between TDMA and SCPC solutions. 

FEKO software is a comprehensive EM simulation tool, based on state of the art computational electromagnetics techniques. The software enables engineers to solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.

Antenna engineers favor advanced antenna systems capable of beam steering and multiple data stream transmission in order to meet 5G throughput requirements.  Designing such a device is a difficult task because many factors are involved a device’s performance:

  • Antenna coupling within a device’s case
  • Effects of multipath propagation
  • Data transfer schemes

XFdtd and Wireless InSite ensure a comprehensive device design process, from simulating the initial antenna pattern to computing throughput performance in a multipath channel model. Together the products ensure a device will work well in its intended environment.

HUBER+SUHNER’s direct GPS-Over-Fiber (GPSoF) solution is designed to enable a fiber optic connection directly into an antenna for the world’s first “truly copperless” link. This solution uses HUBER+SUHNER’s Q-ODC fiber optic interface, making it perfect for applications that have limited power resources and for use in outdoors or harsh environments.

For more than 20 years, one of the fields in which IDS Ingegneria Dei Sistemi has been involved is the design, prototyping and analysis of a large variety of specialized high technology and high performance antennas, from VHF to millimeter wave antennas. 

Over the last several years, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has become a major market. With a large number of vendors, success will be determined by achieving a short time-to-market for the most creative ideas. In order to realize a fast time-to-market, fast and accurate electromagnetic (EM) analysis is an absolute requirement.
