Example 2: Monostatic RCS of a Ship

This case explains how to calculate the monostatic RCS of an imported geometry.

Step 1

Start newFASANT.

Step 2

Select File and click on New.

Step 3

Select GTD-PO.

Step 5

Click on Simulation -> Parameters to change the project parameters.

Figure 3. Simulation parameters window

Step 6

Click con RCS -> Parameters to set de RCS parameters of the project.

Step 8

Introduce the observation information as follows:

Step 9

Before running this example, create the project mesh by doing click on Meshing -> Create Mesh.

Step 10

Visualize the created mesh. To do this click on Meshing -> Visualize mesh.

Now you will be able to choose the generated mesh file.

Step 11

Now we are going to proceed to simulate the project.

Click on Calculate -> Execute and choose the number of processors to use for the simulation. Then click on the Execute button and wait until it ends.
