Ansys HFSS SBR+ for Large Target Radar Signature Analysis
Ansys HFSS SBR+ is a high-frequency solver for modeling high-frequency electromagnetic (EM) scattering from electrically large structures. Shawn Carpenter, senior product manager for high-frequency electronics will present the best-practice workflow for using the HFSS SBR+ solver within the Ansys Electronics Desktop to simulate the radar cross section (RCS) of large targets. In addition to RCS, Shawn will demonstrate the use of the Ansys toolkit to produce range/echo profiles, time-domain waterfall plots and inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) images for pinpointing localized centers of radar scattering.
Shawn Carpenter is a senior product manager for radio frequency (RF) products with Ansys, and has responsibility over product strategy and customer solutions involving installed performance modeling of antennas in electrically large environments, large target radar signature analysis, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) radar sensor modeling and RF system cosite interference analysis. He served as vice president of marketing and sales for Delcross Technologies, before it was acquired by Ansys in 2015. Shawn holds a B.S.E.E. from the University of Minnesota and an M.S.E.E. from Syracuse University, and has over 25 years of experience in applications, marketing and sales of high-frequency electromagnetic and RF system analysis electronic design automation (EDA) software. He has also served as vice president of marketing and sales at Sonnet Software, and as a senior microwave and radar systems engineer with GE Aerospace.
