Phased Array System Toolbox

MathWorks has expanded system design capabilities in Matlab with the launch of Phased Array System Toolbox, enabling engineers to model, simulate and analyse complex phased array systems to gain confidence in their system design across applications such as radar, acoustics and communications.

With capabilities provided as Matlab functions and Matlab System objects, 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.

Phased Array System Toolbox allows radar and acoustics engineers to build monostatic, bistatic and multistatic architectures for a variety of array geometries, with the ability to model these architectures on stationary or moving platforms. Array analysis and visualisation tools enable the evaluation of spatial, spectral and temporal performance.
