Webinar Overview

Ship design from concept to launching is a complex task for any shipyard. A global team effort is required to achieve an appropriately balanced ship design with an optimized overall performance. It is therefore vital that companies are connected in order to access the required knowledge. Dassault Système’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a Business Experience platform, which facilitates collaboration and provides software solutions for all functions from marketing to sales to engineering.

Within this platform, 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation can be used to assess electromagnetic environmental effects (E3). Aboard ships, E3 result from both natural and man-made sources (communication antennas, radar, cables and electronics). Naval ships in particular host a large number of connected antennas to transmit and receive signals, resulting in extremely complex EM environments. It is essential for safe ship operation that all electronic ship functions work properly despite these harsh conditions.

In this eSeminar, the use of 3D EM simulation technologies in order to predict and mitigate RF co-site interference aboard ships will be presented and discussed. Simulation capabilities for antenna placement, RADHAZ and RF interference will be demonstrated.
