Antenna Design/Analysis

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

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. 

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.

HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces an extensive portfolio of directional and omni-directional antennas for a wide range of indoor and outdoor wireless connections. Among these antennas include Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) for indoor coverage of mobile communication voice and data traffic, antennas with low visual impact and high data-traffic, and many other antennas optimized for wireless transportation communications, WLAN, and WiFi applications.

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. 

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.

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.

Antenna technology is constantly advancing to meet the growing demands of industry. Likewise, Remcom has been keeping pace in order to provide engineers with a suite of tools that match their processes and help them meet their design requirements.

Some of the antenna analysis areas Remcom specializes in include:

  • WiFi/Wireless LAN/WiMAX
  • Mobile Devices (cellular, Bluetooth, GPS)
  • Antenna Arrays
  • General Antenna

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.
