How to Design and 3D Print a Radar Target Using Low-Loss Gradient Dielectrics
3D-printed microwave lenses are a commercially viable option for RF devices deployed in the field. When a mission-specific radar target signature is required quickly, a Luneburg-style lens can be configured as a wideband retroreflector to tailor the signal received by threat radars.
You'll learn how engineers at CTI, an HII company, used Ansys HFSS and Fortify's 3D printing technology combined with Rogers Corporation's new Radix low-loss printable dielectric to design and print efficient gradient-index lenses for a drone-mounted radar target application. These presenters will illustrate the workflow from design concept to printed results and correlate simulation results with test data.
