MathWorks introduced Phased Array System Toolbox, which enables radar and acoustics engineers to build monostatic, bistatic, and multistatic architectures for a variety of array geometries. The MathWorks tool also gives engineers the ability to model these architectures on stationary or moving platforms. Array analysis and visualization tools enable the evaluation of spatial, spectral, and temporal performance. Phased Array System Toolbox is available now. Prices start at $1,350 (USD).
Engineers can use MATLAB with Phased Array System Toolbox to model, simulate, and analyze complex phased array systems to gain confidence in their system design across applications such as radar, acoustics and communications. Phased Array System Toolbox includes a large library of algorithms for waveform generation, beamforming, direction of arrival estimation, target detection, and space-time adaptive processing. The toolbox helps engineers model end-to-end phased array systems or use individual algorithms to process acquired data. It includes MATLAB code examples and demos that provide a starting point for implementing user-defined phased array systems.
