ElectroMagnetic Simulation tool for Sensor integration

Reference number
Coordinator Efield AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 3 200 000
Project duration September 2009 - August 2012
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

In studies of future airborne systems integration of sensors with demands on preserved low radar cross section is a prioritised area where a balance between the performance of the sensor and the radar cross section has to be found. Within the aerospace industry there are also needs to find more efficient methods to study interference between different antenna systems. The need to be able to perform such analyses can also be found within the automotive industry where an increasing amount of electronic equipment is integrated in the vehicles and where the electronics performs an increasing number of functions. Today there are very few tools that are capable of performing electromagnetic analyses of sensors and antennas integrated on a platform. The proposed project aims at developing a virtual tool for sensor integration based on improved methods for electromagnetic analysis.

Expected results and effects

The project result will make Efield a better supplier of software within the antenna and radar cross section areas with likely positive effects on the license sales and the ability to grow. The project will strengthen the strong research environment in Sweden within the electromagnetic simulation area. The project result will have a positive impact within the military and civil aerospace industry but also within the automotive industry and the telecommunication sector. More accurate and more advanced analyses will be possible which will decrease the need to build costly prototypes and perform measurements.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is divided in 4 work packages and 10 milestones. Follow up meetings will be held on a quarterly basis to discuss the performed, on going and planned work as well as how well the project goals has been fulfilled.

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