Dozens of Radar Engineers Sign Up for RFView™ at IEEE Radar Conference
Dozens of radar engineers at this year’s IEEE Radar Conference in Seattle, WA took advantage of special conference incentives to sign up for RFView™! Special incentives continue through the end of May so please email us at JGuerci@islinc.com for further details. More information about RFView™ can be found here.
RFView™ is an advanced cloud-based site-specific radio frequency simulation and analysis environment. The simulation environment is built on ISL’s industry-leading Splatter, Clutter, and Target Signal (SCATS) RF phenomenology engine. SCATS has successfully supported numerous advanced development projects for private customers, DARPA, Army, Navy, Air Force and other classified customers since 1989.
RFView™ allows users to enter the simulation parameters in a web interface and then submit a job which is run remotely on a high performance computer cluster to ensure timely simulation results. Thus, no special computing software and hardware is required. When the simulation is completed, the user receives an email notification and can view the data on the RFView™ website. The data is also available for download in both Matlab binary format as well as KML format for easy display and analysis using Google Earth.
Version 2.0 of RFView™ now provides the user with the capability to easily set up a simulation with multiple CPIs along a flight path as well as provides a capability to simulate a bistatic scenario.
It was one of the earliest site-specific radio frequency (RF) phenomenology analysis tools to provide an accurate characterization of complex RF environments. Uses of the model include system analysis, test planning, high-fidelity synthetic data generation, and signal processing algorithm development. The model provides characterization of target returns, direct path signal, ground scattered signal (clutter for radar), direct path signals from interferers, and ground scattered interference signals (hot clutter, splatter, or terrain-scattered interference).
