SABOR: Software for the analysis of

Horns and Reflectors

SABOR: is both a pre-design and an educational program, which is capable of computing radiation patterns both for horns and for reflectors. Now a new beta version is also available only in Spanish.
SABOR is available by downloading it from this web page under a shareware agreement.

Horns: The horns covered by this program are:

  1. H-plane sectoral horn

  2. E-plane sectoral horn

  3. Pyramidal horn

  4. Corrugated rectangular horn

  5. Smooth conical horn

  6. Corrugated conical horn

Reflector configuration: The following reflectors can be also studied:

  1. Cassegrain Parabolic

  2. Single Offset

  3. Double Offset: Cassegrain or Gregorian

The feeder of these reflectors can be a cos-q feeder as well as one of the horns studied by SABOR.

Horn Calculations: Maximum gain, beam width at a certain level, phase center and spillover losses are also calculated when the radiation pattern is plotted.

Reflector Calculations: The values of maximum gain, beam width at a certain level, blockage losses, spillover losses, aperture distribution losses, and the reflection at the feeder are computed when the radiation pattern menu is selected.

Compare option: Several patterns can be superimpossed in the pattern window.

Fully tested: The results of the calculations have been checked against proffesional programs (i.e. GRASP).

User-Friendly: All the software functions are accessible through windows, pop-up menus and mouse.

Platform: SABOR runs on PC-compatible machines under WINDOWS 3.11 or WINDOWS 95.

Computational Speed: Computation by each radiation pattern takes less than 10 seconds on a PENTIUM-100.
