Apatch™ software is an antenna design and analysis tool that provides antenna simulation and modeling by computing the radiation and receiving pattern of an antenna or antenna array installed in an operational environment. The Apatch software can operate on highly realistic, complex, 3D CAD models that are accurate representations of the actual operating environment.
The computer model uses an efficient and high fidelity electromagnetic modeling approach that is based on the shooting and bouncing ray (SBR) technology that is similar to the Xpatch® toolkit. The SBR method launches rays from the antenna(s) and traces them through multiple bounces as they interact with 3D models that define the operating environment. As the rays interact with objects, they deposit currents on the 3D operational environment according to physical optics (PO) principles. These currents are then integrated to generate the scattering contribution of the antenna's environment to produce the overall installed antenna radiation pattern.
The Apatch software can operate on highly realistic complex CAD models of the actual radiating environment, thereby ensuring a great degree of confidence in the simulation results. Typical applications of the Apatch software include the following:
- Aircraft mounted antennas
- Antennas for ground vehicles and installations
- Impact of radomes: dielectric and Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS)
- Spacecraft with antennas and other structures
- Spacecraft with antennas and other structures
- Reflector antenna systems
- Ship superstructure interactions
- Antennas on automobiles, trucks, ships, buildings, and mobile handsets
The Apatch software aids engineers in evaluating the interplay between the effects of antenna placement, vehicle geometry, and the surrounding environment. Users of the Apatch software include government organizations and major aerospace firms.
- Observation Angles
- Pattern Re-centering
- Current Sources Antenna Class
- Sub-Array Zoning
- Key Word Input
The Apatch software is one of the only codes in the US that supports prediction of the realistic interaction of an antenna with its environment. This modeling capability also provides an invaluable aid in analyzing existing systems and allows the system designer to experiment with various antenna placements to quickly characterize the radiation and coupling performance, thus leading to optimized antenna location. Because our software identifies potential problems with antenna placement prior to testing, expensive cut-and-try design methods can be eliminated, thus significantly reducing design and development cycle times.

MICHELLE has models for both equilibrium flow particle trajectories and initial-value time-dependent beam trajectories. It self-consistently computes the emission and transport of charged particles in the presence of electrostatic and magnetostatic fields. The charged particles contribute to the static fields, and the static fields act on the charged particles. The equilibrium flow particle model is also known as a steady-state static PIC code or a gun code. The time-dependent model is an electrostatic time-domain particle-in-cell (PIC) code.
Engineers and scientists use MICHELLE to analyze and design a wide variety of electron and ion sources, accelerator beamline components, and vacuum electron device components. The code is used in industry, national laboratories, and academic research institutions. MICHELLE can model devices that range from simple 2-D axisymmetric devices to very complicated 3-D devices, including those with fine geometric features on disparate spatial scales. MICHELLE can model beam formation, beam transport and focusing systems and beam collection.
MICHELLE was developed to be an architecture that hosts multiple Electromagnetic and Electrostatic field solvers with Particle tracking capability for both Time-Dependent and Steady-State. It is based on a Finite-Element Particle-In-Cell formulation employing a conformal mesh to resolve very complex geometries with fine features.
- Computes the self-consistent emission and transport of charged particle streams (rays) in self and external fields, both electric and magnetic.
- Has a variety of emission models including space-charge-limited, temperature-limited and field-emission, an extensive facility for secondary emission, volumetric ion source model, and a charge exchange model.
- Java-based graphical user interface for preparing runs, and a Windows postprocessor for viewing results. The preprocessor interfaces with the powerful ICEM-CFD mesh generator suite.
- Employ a multiblock structured grid, an unstructured grid, or both in a multiblock hybrid mesh that best takes advantage of both grid types. This allows MICHELLE to model very complicated geometries and resolve very strong field gradients as necessary. The conformal mesh capability and grid types supported allow disparate feature scales to be captured in the analysis.
- Supports linear and quadratic element shapes and basis functions: triangles and quads in 2-D; tetrahedral, hexahedra, prisms and pyramids in 3-D. The different element shapes allow the user to improve the accuracy of a simulation by choosing the optimum mesh topology for the geometry and physics desired.
- Has two mesh-adaptive particle pushers: a fast Boris-type pusher for structured grids and a unique accurate, reliable pusher for unstructured. The option of different particle pushers allows the user to choose between speed and accuracy.
- Integrated into the sophisticated ANALYST EM design environment and included adaptive mesh refinement and global design optimization.
- Although MICHELLE can run in the Voyager User Environment, it is also available in the ANALYST electromagnetic code user environment, by Simulation Technology & Applied Research (STAR Inc). The ANALYST environment is a powerful design environment that includes CAD, Meshing with Adaptive Mesh Refinement, global parametric optimization available to MICHELLE. It also hosts STAR's parallel finite-element electromagnetic frequency domain codes in eigenvalue and driven-frequency models.
- Can be used to run complicated models with over 5 million tetrahedral elements and many tens of thousands of rays. The robustness of the code to handle small to large mesh sizes in 2-D or 3-D geometries allows the designer to work rapidly to test different possibilities and gain intuition during the research and scoping stages of development. Subsequently, the designer can improve the mesh density as needed to validate the detailed or final designs.

OMEGA is a multiscale atmospheric simulation system for advanced, high-resolution weather forecasting and forecasting dosage and hazard levels due to the atmospheric release of aerosols and gases. It has a horizontal grid resolution that ranges from 100 km to 1 km and a vertical resolution that ranges from a few meters to 1 km. OMEGA represents a significant advance in the field of weather prediction. Operational forecast models in current use are scale-specific. Their fixed rectangular grid structure limits the resolution of both the input boundary conditions and the resulting atmospheric simulation. The OMEGA model grid, which is unstructured in the horizontal, adapts to the underlying surface features and can dynamically adapt to atmospheric phenomena as they evolve.
The major advantages of OMEGA over the current state-of-the-art include the ability to resolve the surface terrain down to scales of 1 km and along with that the local perturbations on the larger scale wind field. This local wind field perturbation is of extreme importance in determining the trajectory of an aerosol or gas release or plume. However, in order to calculate this local perturbation, it is important to include all of the physical parameters and processes, which affect the local flow. These include not only the topography, but also the land use, the land/water composition, the vegetation, the soil moisture, the snow cover (if appropriate), and the surface moisture and energy budgets. The inclusion of this additional physics, some of which is only appropriate because of the increased spatial resolution, represents an additional advance in the state-of-the-art.

SIAM can be used to evaluate the impact of each factor in a range of situations, from national security planning to corporate decision-making. Uses include:
- Analyzing a political event
- Assessing a new advertising campaign
- Projecting variations in a financial plan over time.
- Collaborate Across Disciplines
- Analyze Problem Subcomponents.
- Examine Competing Viewpoints/Different Potential Outcomes
- Intuitive and user-friendly interface
- Automated assessment capability
- Independent evaluation of factors/influences
- Understanding of overall impact and interrelationships
- Operates on Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems
- Minimum requirements are 2.4GHz Pentium IV with 512MB RAM and CD-ROM
Causeway™, SIAM's "sister application", is available for export and can be localized to different languages. A Service Support Agreement (SSA) can be purchased which includes upgrades. Training and modeling services are also available.
SIAM encourages the user to consider and track the impact of all issues, events, perceptions, and other factors which are believed to be of some significance. By analyzing all relevant issues, the user can make the most informed decision possible. Automated assessment tools allow the user to evaluate the importance of uncontrolled variables, and adjust decisions to incorporate major developments and changes to the situation or information updates available to the user. With its user-friendly graphical structure and automated evaluation functions, SIAM encourages a more detailed level of thinking than is sometimes possible by intuition alone. Once identified, these detailed issues and relationships can be assessed for their importance within the larger picture.

The Urbana™ toolkit simulates wireless propagation and near field radar sensors in complex environments. The underlying ray-tracing physics engine aggregates Physical Optics, Geometric Optics, and Diffraction Physics to produce a high-fidelity simulation.
- Urban Propagation — The Urbana toolkit provides wireless system planners with a powerful tool to simulate propagation in outdoor rural and urban settings.
- Indoor/Outdoor Propagation — The Urbana toolkit ray tracing engine can account for the complex, cascading multi-bounce effects introduced by multiple walls and other partially penetrable boundaries in an Indoor/Outdoor environment.
- Collision Avoidance Radar — The Urbana toolkit also features a high-fidelity radar signal scattering solution specifically designed to handle complex scenes with numerous scattering features generating radar returns, such as automotive collision radar applications.
- Antenna Studies — Urbana toolkit allows users to study antenna designs and locations to determine the optimal configuration for a particular application.
Key inputs to the Urbana code:
- CAD facet models for terrain, buildings, and other features
- Surface material properties (e.g., concrete, earth, glass, dielectrics, etc.)
- Placement, strength, and vector polarized antenna patterns of transmitter and receivers
- For wireless applications, descriptions of coverage regions that conform to the terrain and buildings in the scene (these are automatically built by Urbana)
- Composite field level at each receiver or coverage region sampling point
- Angle of arrival, polarized strength, and delay of each arriving signal
The Urbana toolkit models wireless and radar systems exhibiting time, frequency, spatial, and field polarization dependence. For wide-band systems, it allows the user to understand the frequency dispersive properties of a channel introduced by realistic materials.
Urbana's powerful modeling tools allow engineers to analyze spatial dependencies that arise from the physical complexity of the environment. Its interface reveals regions of relatively strong or weak signal levels and provides a diagnostic tool for interpreting the results.
