AMCAD has contributed to the active antenna system study conducted by the XLIM Institute. The findings of this study have been documented in a paper scheduled for presentation at EUCAP EuCAP 2024, taking place from March 17 to March 22 in Glasgow.

As part of the program, there will be a session on Advances in modeling and design of phased arrays. The presentation will focus on “Behavioral Models for the Cosimulation and Optimization of Active Electronically Scanned Arrays.”

Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESAs) serve as versatile antenna solutions, especially in applications requiring high reconfiguration capabilities. However, optimizing AESAs is challenging due to their multiple degrees of freedom and the sensitivity of their non-linear components to variations in antenna impedance. In response to these challenges, this presentation focuses on leveraging behavioral models for both non-linear components and antenna radiating elements.

This innovative approach, combined with AMCAD’s support and VISION software, facilitates the cosimulation of LARGE array antenna. This collaboration not only allows for the design of antennas while analyzing their impact on active components but also opens PATHS for diverse optimization strategies in the overall system.
