EM Analysis and Shipboard EME
InField's expertise is in computational modelling of complex electromagnetic environments (EMEs) with a speciality in Navy Ships including Communication, Navigation, Radar and Electronic Warfare Systems. We conduct extensive modelling of shipboard structures, emitters and receivers in order to predict the near-field electromagnetic field distributions, far-field radiation patterns, and provide a comprehensive analysis of a ship's electromagnetic environment effects (E3), including:
Evaluation of antenna coupling;
Antenna radiation blockage and obstacle interaction;
Source - Victim electromagnetic interference (EMI);
Optimization of Topside Arrangements;
RF Radiation Hazard (RADHAZ) predictions and procedures;
Source - Victim field exposure;
EMC Shield designs;
Radar Cross Section (RCS) predictions; and,
E3 Tests and Trials.
Lockheed Martin Canada Mission Systems & Training Invests in Canadian Naval R&D
Provides grant to Quebec-based engineering and technology small business
Pointe-Claire, QC, Dec 9, 2014 – Lockheed Martin Canada Mission Systems & Training (LM Canada MST) today announced the award of a new research and development grant to Quebec-based InField Scientific. The grant will support InField’s continued development of advanced technologies that are used to characterize and protect the ships of the Royal Canadian Navy.
“InField Scientific is a recognized leader in this very specialized engineering domain,” said Kevin Arthurs, Director of Naval Programs for LM Canada MST. “The work they are doing, which we are very proud to support, will result in increased protection and safety for Canada’s ships and sailors.”
InField has worked with LM Canada MST for eighteen years and is an important partner on the Canadian Halifax Class Modernization project. This relationship has expanded to include work on Canada’s Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship program. In addition, InField is contributing to LM Canada MST’s technical solution in its recent export sale to the Royal New Zealand Navy’s ANZAC Frigate System Upgrade (FSU).
“We are proud of our company’s history working with the Navy” said InField’s founder and President, Dr. Amy Pinchuk, Eng., “and we are excited about this grant from LM Canada MST, which along with guidance from Dr. Robert Paknys of Concordia University, will help us to increase our technical capabilities and hire additional highly qualified staff. We are also very grateful to LM Canada MST for taking the initiative to promote InField to the Royal New Zealand Navy in connection with the ANZAC FSU program, which resulted in our first export contract.”
Rosemary Chapdelaine, who leads LM Canada MST’s operations, said “We have been developing, modernizing and supporting combat systems for the Royal Canadian Navy for more than 30 years. During this time, we have been very fortunate to identify and work with many innovative Canadian companies such as InField. As we turn our attention to the naval projects currently moving forward, we are keen to expand our existing partnerships and establish new ones with leading-edge Canadian firms.”
