DEFINING ANTENNA PERFORMANCE
TICRA is the leading provider of cutting-edge antenna modelling software for spacecraft manufacturers and operators, space agencies, earth station suppliers, defence organisations and research institutions.
TICRA Tools - Seamless integration of antenna analysis and design tools
The TICRA Tools framework offers a range of products with a proven track record you can trust to accomplish your daily analysis and design optimisation tasks. The applications range from reflector antennas in GRASP over general antenna and scattering analysis in ESTEAM to feed horns and waveguide components in CHAMP 3D, as well as surfaces composed of frequency and polarization-sensitive materials in QUPES. POS is the tool for advanced payload antennas, while UQ augments the usual antenna design process with uncertainties on design parameters to get expected antenna performance and confidence intervals.
Mission planning and analysis
The earth seen from space is a key visual when planning future satellite services. Equipped with a customisable database of cities on the globe, performance tables are easily generated to thoroughly inspect the performance of a given satellite antenna anywhere in the service area.
Measurement systems and software
Measurements are an inherent part of any antenna development, and TICRA has a strong heritage in this field, particularly with our unique spherical near-field far-field transformation software with probe correction. And should the measurements prove to deviate from the theoretical results, we have a dedicated diagnostics tool to help pin-pointing the cause of the problem.
