Breault Research Organisation (BRO) has released an enhanced version of the company's Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASAP).
The ASAP 2008 V2R1 release adds capability to the program used for virtual prototyping of optical systems and devices.
Industry applications for ASAP include automotive, architectural and speciality illumination design, simulation of laser systems and other coherent devices, stray light analysis of telescopes and space-based imaging systems, display modelling, complete biomedical system modelling, micro-optical device modelling, and others.
ASAP 2008 V2R1’s features include: Penalty Functions; Polarisation Enhancements; Poincaré Sphere Enhancements; Roughness and Scatter Models; IGES Import Enhancements; and 3D Viewer Enhancements.
These and other features enable ASAP users in 35 countries to model and analyse the finest details of optical systems, which means users can depend on their simulations to mirror real-world performance. ASAP analyses validate designs and support smooth transitions to manufacturing.
