Technion Students Design Synthetic Aperture Radar Simulator Using NI AWR Design Environment

EL SEGUNDO, CA, Mar. 14, 2016 -- The students at Technion—Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel have successfully designed a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) using NI AWR Design Environment™. The design challenge was to build an efficient, easy-to-use SAR simulator that would connect to MATLAB for signal processing and that could handle many targets on the surface and then use MATLAB to calculate the object shapes. The SAR simulator had to perform as quickly as possible.

The Technion students used Microwave Office circuit design software, Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system design software, and AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) analysis software because it provides an intuitive, accurate, and flexible environment. The software gave the students a simple yet accurate look at the architecture and design phases of the SAR simulator. They were able to examine many related examples that were provided, which helped them in learning the software, its capabilities, and its usefulness for the SAR simulator project.

“We found the e-learning tools and software documentation very helpful,” said Yoav Chachamovitz, Technion student. “The vast simulation options within NI AWR Design Environment makes radar design a very easy and straightforward process.’’
