Uncertainty quantification for reflector antennas
Large reflector antennas for telecommunication or space observation purposes often require a lengthy and detailed design process, where the design is carefully revised to ensure the best performance for the intended application. For many modern reflector antennas, quantification of the uncertainty in performance as a function of manufacturing errors is an important part of the design process. In this paper, we present an efficient way of quantifying the effects of uncertainty in the production. The method is shown to far outperform the conventional Monte-Carlo techniques in accuracy and computational time.
