An Integrated Workflow for Simulating Installed Antenna and RF System Performance on Airborne Platforms
This paper presents an integrated workflow for simulating installed antenna and radio frequency (RF) system performance on airborne platforms using ANSYS tools. This workflow begins with the challenges of solving diverse electromagnetic problems involving antennas primarily on aircraft. These problems involve electrically small, medium, large and enormous structures. The workflow also extends to the simulation of wideband RF interference (RFI) potential between RF systems connected to the antennas on the aircraft — an electromagnetic phenomenon often called RF Cosite interference, or Cosite RFI.
