CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) is showcasing its new features for radar cross-section (RCS) simulation in the upcoming version of its flagship electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2015, at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2014, booth 109.
Aerospace and defense companies and government agencies worldwide use CST STUDIO SUITE on mission-critical projects. Its tightly-integrated solvers cover a broad range of frequencies and scales, allowing demanding and complex electromagnetic environments to be simulated during the development phase of new technologies.
RCS is an important consideration when designing new equipment, and is something that CST has long supported. The 2015 release builds on the previous RCS capabilities of CST STUDIO SUITE by adding the ability to produce RCS maps – plots of RCS phase or amplitude against frequency and scan angle – with the shooting and bouncing ray (SBR) asymptotic solver. RCS maps give engineers a more detailed view of the cross-section of a platform, and can be used to help identify potential scatterers.
