Phased Array Systems and Software

Phased Array Software for Acoustic Flight Tests

AVEC has developed a state-of-the-art phased array software for flight tests. Features include several options for aircraft tracking (GPS, line cameras, manual triggers), data pre-processing module to check all microphones signals simultaneously, deconvolution, directivity calculations, EPNL estimation, and automatic report generation (including word processor, slides, JPEG and HTML formats), among other features.

The software can also be customized to meet any customer needs. Please click the button below to download a brochure or contact us now.


Phased Array Software for Wind Tunnels and General Applications

AVEC has developed a high-end phased array processing software that is the perfect complement to AVEC's array system or your current array. This new version includes several new features and improvements, including the capability to perform beamforming with flow for aeroacoustic testing.

The software is divided in three main modules:

Array design: in this module you will have access to a powerful tool to help you design your own array. The array response, signal-to-noise ratio and resolution as a function of frequency are available to you in just a few seconds. This module is a perfect tool for learning or teaching the basics of phased array.

Array simulation: this feature will let you simulate different sources to help you understand how arrays work or simply to see what you would expect in your experimental testing.

Data processing and analysis: this module is the core of the AVEC software. Its ease of use and unmatched processing speed will increase your productivity while providing you with high quality results. Such results can be analyzed as conventional phased array results using contour plots or our photo interface that will show the results overlaid to a picture of the system being studied. Among its many features, its unique automatic report generation will give you professional looking results in no time, giving you more time to focus on analyzing data.
