Antenna Design/Analysis

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

The R&S®ATS1000 antenna test chamber is designed to provide the ideal environment for 5G antenna characterization throughout the entire process from R&D to production for both active and passive devices. This system supports far-field and near-field antenna measurements with its compact design. The mobile chamber helps to optimize the overall RF performance of antenna modules already in the initial phases of development.

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.

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. 

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.

The challenges involved with measuring an antenna’s radiation characteristics when it’s mounted on a large platform stem from the fact that it’s very difficult to accurately simulate an antenna’s interaction with an electrically large environment.

HUBER+SUHNER offers an array of antenna solutions customized to meet specific application needs. Various modifications can be made including an individual bracket for faster installation, tailored lengths for saving space, and standard labels for simplifying logistics.

The SAS-326-10 is a surveillance/jamming antenna designed to operate withing the 30 MHz to 26 GHz frequency range, which allows for prosecution of a large portion of the RF spectrum. Constructed as a broadband dual band discone/bicone antenna, it is ideal for spectrum operations and spectrum management applications.

FEKO software is a comprehensive electromagnetic (EM) analysis software suite, building on state of the art computational EM (CEM) techniques to provide users with software that can solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.
