I need to optimise reflector antenna designs
TICRA represents the benchmark for reflector antenna analysis. Nothing else comes close in terms of speed and accuracy. That’s why we are the go-to solution for every major player in the satellite industry.
To help you achieve fast and accurate reflector antenna design, we have a skilled team of engineers available to assist with your engineering tasks as well as product training.
Reflector systems and VSAT design and analysisTo help you meet your specifications, our experts can design and analyse a wide range of reflector systems for you. Compact antenna test ranges (CATR) with high performance quiet zones are also within our expertise.
Feed horn designSometimes you have the reflector antenna already and need a new feed horn for a specific frequency band. Our experts can design various types of horns, including feed network, for your specific antenna system, which will comply with your electrical and mechanical requirements.
Scattering analysisThe performances change when the antenna is placed in its final environment, for example, in the vicinity of other antennas, solar panels, or spacecraft walls. Our experts can provide you with a detailed scattering analysis that very accurately matches the performance you will see in the final environment.
Reflectarray and FSS designTICRA has developed a unique and dedicated analysis and optimization tool for the design of periodic and quasi-periodic structures such as reflectarray and FSS. Using this tool, our experts can optimize reflectarray and FSS designs for you to achieve performances that meet your specifications.
Large deployable reflectors (LDR) RF analysisThe accurate RF analysis of reflector antennas with a deployable truss and a reflective tricot mesh is always a critical task in LDR developments. Our experts know how to accurately model the antenna geometry and take all electrical contributions into account.
Multi-beam antenna designMulti-beam antennas are used for a number of applications in LEO and GEO orbit. Our experts can help you trading-off direct radiating arrays and array fed reflectors and design an antenna system that meets the tough specifications you come with.
Uncertainty quantification (UQ) analysisAsk TICRA’s experts to predict the expected performance of your antenna system when subject to manufacturing or electrical tolerances. In this way you will know how your designed antenna performs in practice and what to expect from RF measurements.
TrainingSometimes a user's manual isn’t enough. That’s why we offer software training tailored to meet your specific needs. New employees will experience a shorter learning curve and specialists have the opportunity to keep up with the latest technology. Training must be booked well in advance.
Technical support and maintenanceAll new software licenses include one year of Technical Support and Maintenance, TSM. This service includes expert help in the use of the software with 24 hours response time from Monday through Friday as well as immediate access to new features and enhancements when a new software version is released.
