Antenna design, sensor placement, and target identification algorithms can be evaluated against NCAP test scenarios using WaveFarer. OEM and Tier 1 suppliers use the simulated raw radar returns to understand a radar’s ability to perform elevation measurements, identify targets, and separate objects.
WaveFarer’s features enable fast and accurate analysis of repeatable drive test scenarios.
Near-field propagation method Calculate scattering off target surfaces, including multi-path interactions with ground reflections, using ray-tracing algorithms and physics-based calculations.
Targeted ray casting Efficiently produce high-fidelity returns from a target.
Dynamic scenario Apply movement to radar sensors, target vehicles, and other scatterers.
User defined antennas Import measured or simulated radiation patterns.
Shared platform with XFdtd Integrated solution promotes productivity.
