Two New Products Unveiled at 2016 IEEE Radar Conference in Philadelphia
ISL unveiled two new “one-of-a-kind” products at the 2016 IEEE Radar Conference in Philadelphia, PA. The first is a new cloud based version of our high-fidelity RF modeling and simulation capability called RFView. RFView is an advanced cloud-based site-specific radio frequency simulation and analysis environment. The simulation environment is built on ISL’s industry-leading Splatter, Clutter, and Target Signal (SCATS) RF phenomenology engine. SCATS has successfully supported numerous advanced development projects for DARPA, Army, Navy, Air Force and other private and classified customers since 1989.
It was one of the earliest site-specific radio frequency (RF) phenomenology analysis tools to provide an accurate characterization of complex RF environments. Uses of the model include system analysis, test planning, high-fidelity synthetic data generation, and signal processing algorithm development. The model provides characterization of target returns, direct path signal, ground scattered signal (clutter for radar), direct path signals from interferers, and ground scattered interference signals (hot clutter, splatter, or terrain-scattered interference).
Visit the RFView web-based interface at https://rfview.islinc.com/ . This new interface allows our customers to easily access the SCATS capability to support their specific project needs.
The second allows a radar unit to interact in real-time with this high-fidelity environmental emulation! See the Real-Time Electro-Magnteic Environmental Simulator (RTEMES) in action below! Check out the brochure.
This video shows RTEMES in action at the IEEE Radar Conference. It begins with the radar under test (a commercial maritime radar) which is operating normally except it is not actually radiating out through the antenna (for safety and FCC compliance). The display shows a location in West Virginia which as far as the radar is concerned is actually where it is located! The final display shows the four different locations RTEMES was cycling through every 30 seconds (West Virginia, coast of Los Angeles, White Sands Missile Range, and the Chesapeake Bay region).
ISL is the industry leader in high-fidelity physics-based electromagnetic environmental modeling and simulation. With the new web-based interface, anyone can have access to this powerful capability. Additionally, with RTEMES, you can then go real-time with your actual flight hardware.
