IDS Space Lab supports customers with the provision of a software framework for electromagnetic antenna design and analyses (from stand-alone to S/C installed) with combined modeling methods and full engineering cycle support: the Antenna Design Framework (ADF).
ADF has been designed in cooperation with the European Space Agency with the aim of advancing existing simulators available in the global marketplace for space applications and beyond. The focus was on developing a fully-fledged Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tool for antenna engineers as a new technology solution that has a competitive edge over other commercial electromagnetic simulators.
ADF is a simulation environment that brings together validated and sophisticated electromagnetic solvers, a large number of fast tools and functions for antenna engineers along with a rich set of user-friendly modeling procedures.
Through ADF it is possible to produce highly accurate predictions of the electromagnetic performance of single antennas, arrays and complex antenna platforms by drawing on IDS's excellence in advanced computational methods and special functions required by space applications that are not usually available in general purpose tools.
