Advanced radar simulation library including pulse signals, modulation, target, clutter, and environment models for testing radar system designs. Includes the W4514E PathWave STK Link to connect simulations to AGI's STK software.
The W4526E PathWave Aerospace Defense Library includes:
- Aerospace and Defense Designer which enables users to easily configure and visualize scenarios
- Support for multiple Radar technologies and architectures
- Connect algorithm development with RF system performance
- Verify system operation over numerous target scenarios
The PathWave Aerospace Defense Library saves development time and verification expense in R&D for radar system architects, algorithm developers, and system verifiers. The library provides over 100 highly parameterized simulation blocks and several dozen ready-made reference designs for creating working radar system scenarios, including radar processing blocks, environmental effects items such as clutter, targets, and even hardware measurements. Instead of modeling an entire scenario from primitive function calls for each object, simply connect realistic reference designs with RF models and test equipment to study and verify radar system architectures.
The W4526E also incorporates the new Aerospace and Defense Designer which delivers a paradigm shift in usability. It comprises the A/D editor for scenario configuration and the A/D visualizer (W4515E) to animate the scenario as it simulates. Users can now create and run radar simulations, easily configure, plus visualize scenarios, positions, and movement of objects, without having to view or edit the schematic.
The Aerospace Defense library can be applied to a wide range of radar technologies, making it a useful algorithmic reference for both commercial and military applications. These can include target and RCS scenarios, clutter conditions, jammers and environmental interferers, and more. By accounting for a diverse set of environmental effects, while maintaining an open modeling environment (MATLAB, C++, VHDL, test equipment), the Radar system designer can explore architectures with high confidence in early R&D, without requiring expensive outdoor range testing or hardware simulators.
