About this Webinar
Spacecraft experience thermal loading in orbit affects various systems onboard, including radios and associated antennas, which are a critical part of satellite operations. Essential aspects include telemetry, tracking, and control (TT&C), and frequently the primary function of the satellite mission (television, internet, military communications).
Due to thermal loading, the antenna shape can deform and may cause critical issues that could inhibit communications. However, you can digitally engineer a spacecraft using Ansys products and workflows to overcome the harsh thermal effects in orbit. We'll discuss the details of the Ansys solution and integration, focusing on Spacecraft Antenna Thermal Deformation.
What You Will Learn
- How Ansys Systems Tool Kit (STK) can generate the spacecraft’s design reference mission (a representative mission profile of the system’s intended use)
- How Ansys Thermal Desktop simulates thermal heating from the space environment in orbit on the spacecraft and its antenna
- How Ansys Mechanical assesses the deformation that may occur on the antenna
- How Ansys HFSS simulates the new antenna as installed radiation pattern
Who Should Attend
Engineers who are interested in exploring spacecraft antenna thermal deformation and the solutions to digitally engineer a spacecraft to overcome the harsh thermal effects in orbit.
