Abstract:

One of the most important problems encountered in an electromagnetic environment is that of providing compatibility between radiating and receiving RF equipment within the environment. This problem is a type of EMI and the goal of RF system designers and analysts is to achieve EMC where no interference problems exist. We propose to develop a software tool named Electromagnetic Interference Toolkit (EMIT) for predicting interference between radiating and receiving RF systems where the dominant coupling mechanism is antenna-to-antenna. The tool will consist of a GUI and underlying computational engines. The GUI will pass user specified inputs to the computational engine, will provide visualization of data (2-D and 3-D plots, schematics, and mesh of the platform & antennas), and will interface with the full wave solver WIPL-D for the generation of coupling data. During the Phase I effort, we have developed the architecture and implementation plan for the EMIT software, developed proof of concept modules for the computational engines, and validated these modules. The Phase II effort will focus on commercializing the tool. As such, the emphasis will be on developing a GUI, implementing the proof-of-concept codes developed under the Phase I as robust engineering codes, and performing measurement based validations.
