Air defense missiles typically require a proximity fuse, priming the missile warhead to detonate when the missile is close enough to the target. One of the ways that such a proximity fuse can be implemented is with a small radar that is used in short-range low power mode. The antenna for such a radar requires relatively good gain in the main lobe and side lobe levels (SLL) that are well below the main lobe level. This antenna is mounted conformal to the airframe of the missile and has a main lobe squint angle directed towards the nose of the missile. This article demonstrates how a design for an applicable antenna may be created and simulated in its operating environment with two popular software applications. By EM Software & Systems
Installation of remote radio systems presents many challenges for mobile radio operators, installers, and system integrators. Challenges include considerations for how the higher power requirements affect the inductance of newly integrated hybrid cycles, and how inductive voltage drops can be reduced.
This application note presents a new predictive capability for simulating massive MIMO antennas and beamforming in dense urban propagation environments. Wireless InSite MIMO predicts the complex channel matrix for mobile devices within a small cell. Beamforming techniques are used to display the actual physical beams and evaluate signal power and interference, including pilot contamination distortion.
A problematic base station can be replaced, but a cable and antenna system is not so easy to replace. This article covers fundamentals of cable and antenna analysis measurements: return loss, cable loss, and distance-to-fault (DTF).
