Solvers

Method of moments (MoM), physical optics (PO), hybrid MoM-PO

Antenna Toolbox™ provides four different types of solvers , each with a specific purpose:

Solver TypeSolver Purpose
Method of moments (MoM) solver for metal structuresUsed for pure metal antenna analysis
MoM solver for metal and dielectric structuresUsed for metal and dielectric antenna analysis
Physical optics (PO) solverUsed for radar cross section(RCS) analysis
Hybrid MoM-PO solverUsed for installed antenna analysis
