General EM scattering and radiation
ESTEAM is the tool for solving electromagnetic scattering and radiation problems of general nature involving conducting as well as dielectric materials. The true strength of ESTEAM is clear when analysing electrically large systems such as an entire spacecraft with a multitude of reflector antennas, solar panels, thrusters and other mechanical structures.
Minimum memory requirement, maximum speed
The secret lies in decades of in-house R&D in MoM techniques using higher-order patches and current expansion functions combined with an accelerated method, MLFMM, tailored to the MoM algorithm. This ensures maximum accuracy with minimum memory consumption, while simultaneously achieveing high speed.
Flexible handling of complex geometrical models
Parametrised objects are available to build models of various geometries and antennas, and if combined with GRASP in TICRA Tools, a wide range of parametrised reflector geometries are also available. More complex structures may be imported through CAD files in STEP or IGES format or through tabulated mesh files.
