Ship EDF is a software framework conceived for the electromagnetic design of naval vessels. It is a comprehensive system capable of supporting concurrent electromagnetic design and assisting the optimization of naval platforms. It is a modular system which can provide coverage for EMC/EMI assessment including antenna placement and radiation hazard identification, as well as radar cross section (RCS) and infrared (IR) signature analysis.
Below Deck Module:
Ship EDF Below Deck is a framework which aims to provide support in solving the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) issues found in a ship's below deck environment. This environment consists of numerous different pieces of automation, command, control and communications equipment interconnected by thousands of cables. The Below Deck module provides a 3D graphical interface for generating a numerical model (mesh) of both a ship's internal compartments and 3D cable paths as well as an Oracle database for the management of equipment characteristics and storage of analyses.
Ship EDF Below Deck allows designers and ship builders to identify potential critical issues caused by EMI on cables and equipment during the early design phases rather than later in the construction phase or acceptance testing. This avoids the possible need for an expensive and time consuming re-wiring job.
