Antenna Measurement System Software & Options

 

The Desktop Antenna Measurement System also known as D.A.M.S, has been designed to provide a cost effective method of designing and testing small to medium sized antennas. The System uses state of the art software to fully interact with your Network Analyzer to provide seamless automatic measurements with little user intervention required.

 

 

 Ideal for Wireless RF & Microwave Antenna Design & Development  

 
 

DAMs Antenna Measurement System Software

 

 

DAMS Software

 

Advanced Features

 

Spherical Plots & Iso-Spheres

 

Version 4 now offers spherical plots with iso-spheres and you can project the response on to a sphere of radius equal to the platform separation and grid equal to the measurement

 

Comes Standard

 with the ALL DAMs Systems

Plot Gallery

 

Each sphere represents an Isotropic gain in dBi. The antenna plot is derived from S21

If you look down at the main lobe and use the rendered Iso-Sphere you can easily visualize the associated beam widths by specifying the Iso-Sphere grid

 

 

A play mode is also available to play the profile through the frequency range. This yields some amazing movies.

 

The DAMS 6000 is required for this software.

 

 DAMs Software

 

Comes Standard

 with the ALL DAMs Systems

 

 

Designed for quick learning and maximum productivity the D.A.M.S. Software has been designed with many time saving features including instant help which provides on the spot help for any function.


An all-on-one Page contains everything you need to completely measure an antenna including A Polar Plot, Resetting Amplitude Plot, and a Non-Resetting history plot.


Use the export function to put all of your data into a file to be used with Math-CAD or imported into Excel.

Please See our Advanced Processing Add-on for advanced features such as Group Delay functions and 3D plots with multiple data registers.

 DAMs Software

Advanced Features

 

Comes Standard

 with the ALL DAMs Systems


Our Advanced processing software enables you to take antenna measurements to the next level. Using state of the art data mapping routines our software can take an array of measurements and turn them into a 3D plot mapping the response of Multiple frequencies over rotation.


Along with 3D plotting, the Advanced processing Software has A Group Delay section, Stem Cell Plots area and Real-Time Amplitude over Frequency function.

 

Advanced Processing Page

 

The Advanced Processing page contains all of the necessary elements to fully profile a specific antenna. The four data Registers are used to store multiple antenna profiles for comparison
