Hardware Acceleration of Method of Moments (MoM) for Large-Scale EM Scattering Computations
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Virtual EM is proposing to build a cluster utilizing a commercially available special purpose processor. The proposed system will offer a performance-to-price ratio, which is "five times" better than the leading commercial clusters. Using this cluster and Virtual EM's 3D Method of Moments simulator, one will be able to accurately model small boats (including the surrounding patch of sea) within a reasonable simulation time and budget. The (performance-to-price) ratio will increase as the number of nodes in the cluster grows due to linear speed-up and the unit price dropping. Phase I will establish benchmarks using a one-node system, and a 10-node prototype cluster will be built in Phase II for modeling realistic targets.
