Simulating Antenna Crosstalk on an Airplane's Fuselage

Application ID: 18087

Antenna crosstalk, or co-site interference, is problematic when multiple antennas are used on a single large platform.

In this model, the interference between two identical antennas at VHF frequency is studied with an S-parameter analysis of different configurations of a receiving antenna installed on an airplane fuselage. The 2D and 3D far-field radiation patterns of a transmitting antenna are computed and the lit and shadow areas on the airplane surface are also visualized.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
