DAMS Antenna Network & Measurement Simulator

The Antenna Network Measurement Simulator is the newest addition to Diamond Engineering’s DAMS Antenna Measurement Studio. This optional module enables DAMS Antenna Measurement Studio to perform a whole host of new simulation capabilities. Designed to be fully customizable with editable icon-based schematics which utilize capture vectors (cascading two-port with wave addition). Also includes such features as circuit matching, radar cross-section, axis translation and rotation among others. Measurements can even be made directly from the schematic!

Educational discounts available on all of our products for students, teachers or staff of universities or technical schools.
