The analysis and integration of antennas for radar applications requires an in-depth understanding of the interaction with the environment and the installation platform. With Antenna Toolbox, you don’t need to be an expert in the electromagnetic domain: you can design an antenna by taking advantage of intuitive apps and a catalog of more than 70 antennas and arrays parameterized in geometry.
In this webinar, you see how to develop beamforming algorithms taking into account edge effects and the coupling between array elements. You also see how to install the antenna on a large platform such as an airplane or a car. Practical demonstrations show how to easily import the description of an arbitrary installation platform using CAD formats such as STL files and analyze its effects on the antenna performance.
This webinar focuses on installing antenna arrays on platforms, analyzing the antenna performance also taking into account propagation effects, and extending this approach for the computation of the radar cross section (RCS). Learn how MATLAB and Antenna Toolbox can help you in designing antennas and antenna arrays and integrating them earlier at the system-level. Antenna Toolbox uses the method of moments (MoM) and the physical optics solvers for full EM simulation to provide accurate results, and it is fully integrated in MATLAB.
