The improved Multifunction Radar type analyzes and models multi-beam radars. A multi-beam radar models an abstract phased array radar with multiple pencil beams. Each beam, which may be single or dual (Pol) channel, can be used to perform Search/Track analysis.
With STK 11.6, AGI added several RF-based metrics applicable to Mutlifunction radars as Access constraints. These constraints compute either the minimum of a metric across all beams or the maximum of a metric across all beams, where the metric is an RF metric, such as Single Pulse, SNR, Intergrated PDet, Dwell Time, etc.
In addition, STK now validates that the total of all active beam powers on a Multifunction Radar does not exceed the maximum power limit of the radar system.
