Radar Cross Section
SURMA model can be linked to various signature assessment tools. For example, the effect to ship radar cross section from the changes in design to outer geometry and surface materials can immediately be analysed with ShipEDF software from IDS or with CAST radar cross section calculation software developed by Technical Research Centre of Finland, VTT. The calculation results can then be used to define the hit distribution in survivability analysis threat scenarious.
Under Water Electromagnetic Signatures
The geometry of magnetic sources is obtained directly form the ship 3D model, and the predicted signature is updated automatically during the ship design process. The magnetic signature prediction is based on thin shell and dipole source modeling. This approach ensures accurate predictions of signature levels already at the early stages of the design. No more heavy and expensive oversized degaussing systems.
