Communicating from Space: The Front End of Multiscale ModelingJiyoun Munn, Technical Product Manager, RF Module, COMSOL
As satellites and astronauts travel further out in space, the more communication challenges they are faced with. This article discusses the variety of antennas that can be found on a spacecraft and the different simulation techniques that are best suited for each type of antenna such as helical antenna, horn antenna, dish reflector antenna, and phased array antenna.
The user interface of the antenna array simulation app, built using the Application Builder within COMSOL Multiphysics, with an 8 x 8 virtual array, electric field distribution, and 3D far-field radiation pattern view.
