Radar simulation tool for training and R&D announced by PresagisNews
June 26, 2015
MONTREAL. Presagis engineers released a new radar simulation tool, called Ondulus Radar, enables high-fidelity, high-performance radar sensors to be added to simulation applications in training as well as research & development (R&D) efforts.
The new tool can simulate ground-based radar at a specific geographic location as well as radar on board simulated vehicles, such as ships, tanks, planes, and jet aircraft, to comprehend how distance, mobility, and speed will affect radar performance.
Ondulus Radar is part of the company’s M&S Suite, a modeling and simulation framework that has database and 3D modeling tools, sensor material classification tools, computer generated forces, and FlightSIM and HeliSIM for flight dynamics modeling.
Company officials say that since Ondulus Radar was fully developed in Canada, it can be offered as their first non-ITAR sensor product.” [ITAR stands for International Traffic in Arms Regulations].
The name Ondulous derives from the Latin “unda” for wave and signifies the waves that radar systems use to illuminate objects.
