Antenna Design/Analysis


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 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 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.

IDS offers Antenna Design Framework and Electromagnetic Satellite (ADF-EMS) software for analyzing structures with a large number of elements to ensure excellent array performance. 

Horizon Technologies offers the new FlyingFish™ Airborne Satellite Monitoring System (ASMS) designed to enable international government bodies to passively monitor satellite communications from airborne monitoring platforms. This lightweight, cost-effective system can monitor Thuraya, and Isat-Pro networks, and can detect and intercept terminal and call activity such as voice, fax, data, and SMS within radio line-of-site.

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.

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. 

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.
