Computational method for an AEW end-fire antenna

Reference number
Coordinator SAAB Aktiebolag - SAAB AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 3 125 000
Project duration October 2014 - February 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

All targets were fulfilled. Ground-breaking algorithms that achieve unmatched improvements in computation time and memory requirements were delivered on schedule. The academia has consequently secured a publication volume that exceeds the initially expected. A spin-off application concerning arrays with a depth dimension was examined, in which the possibility to suppress grating lobes was demonstrated.

Expected results and effects

The results are expected to have a number of positive effects. Secondly, the long-term effects on Saab´s radar portfolio, as well as those resulting from the establishment of ESI Nordics as an external SME part: Saab does not need to invest in a new code development business Saab can acquire the required computing capacity from ESI Nordics under commercial terms ESI Nordics receives a brand new, highly efficient product in its portfolio, ... ... which also benefits the Swedish academy as well as industry.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been a close collaboration between industry and academia with Saab as a requirement specifier and project manager. Lund University has contributed theoretical studies and calculations. The work was conducted with quarterly follow-up meetings where all parties discussed their obtained results and direction for the next period. Ideas and results were continuously exchanged between the participants.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
