A High-Performance Computing cluster with 904 cores, the associated scheduler and licensed software for various applications (Matlab, Mathematica, Labview, Julia, Tecplot, Ansys suite, Siemens StarCCM+, 3DS Simulia PowerFlow suite, Autodesk Inventor, FEKO, …) and in-house codes (PropNOISEBB, ShipSTAB, …) is available to conduct the necessary simulations.
The department is operating a medium size semi-anechoic chamber (15 m2) mainly devoted to EMC and EMI testing in compliance with civilian and military standards (EN 61000, MIL-STD-461D and SDIP-27). The chamber is equipped with a rotating table and remote operation is possible.
Experimental radar range
The experimental radar range consists in a VNA-based radar able to operate in the frequency range between 1 and 26 GHz. It can be configured either to measure RCS of small objects placed on a rotating table. The objects can be up to approximately 1m3. It can also be configured in SAR mode, the antennas being placed on a rail with a length of 3 m.
With a length of 15 m and a width of 4 m, the laser tunnel offers a controlled and safe environment for testing laser performance, as a stand-alone system, or in combination with optronics sensors. The tunnel is equipped with a fixed and a mobile optical table, a series of lasers, and detection and beam analysis equipment.
