Installed antenna analysis involves electrically large structures called platforms. These platforms can be a plane, ship, or inside a car on its bumper. Antennas or arrays are installed around these platforms. You can use Antenna Toolbox™ to understand the effects of platform on antenna performance.
Use antenna elements to create infinite arrays, analyze the arrays over the desired range of scan angles, and calculate scan element patterns.
Infinite arrays are rectangular arrays of infinite extent.
Antenna Toolbox library element uses the image theory technique to model an infinite ground plane.
Hybrid method of moments (MoM) physical optics (PO) computational technique in Antenna Toolbox allows you to model antennas near large scatterers such as parabolic reflectors.
