RADAR SIMULATION Software updates improve signal fidelity when simulating dynamic radar targets
At the European Microwave Week (EuMW), dSPACE will show how software updates make radar target simulators more accurate and powerful so that radar sensors and applications can be reliably tested in development, production, quality assurance, and maintenance.
The increasing performance of the latest generation of radar equipment results in growing requirements for testing. With a range of new software functions, dSPACE makes it possible to meet these test requirements. This applies to both new DARTS radar target simulators and existing equipment – a clear demonstration of the importance dSPACE places on the security of your investment in DARTS radar target simulators.
The software updates will primarily improve the fidelity of dynamically moving radar targets. This is important because newer radars can, for example, detect the speed of a radar target with much higher accuracy by evaluating a combination of different properties of the radar target. Inter-frame switching, for example, ensures that the signal integrity of all radar frames is maintained even for high-accuracy radar sensors in highly dynamic scenarios.
"We make the new functions available free of charge as part of our continuous product maintenance with our regular firmware releases, thus protecting investments and also ensuring that systems already installed in the field keep getting better," explains Dr. Alexander Trapp, Product Manager Radar Solutions at dSPACE.
The new functions can be seen in action at EuMW in the Radar Test Bench Compact 3D and in several demonstrations of individual DARTS.
