Abstract:

The US Army requires the development of a mmW (90-300 GHz) RCS modeling formalism to support design, analysis, and characterization of objects in this frequency band. The IERUS Technologies and Ohio State Microwave Laboratory team have identified a means of implementing and validating this modeling framework. This method combines IERUS"s extensive computational electromagnetics development expertise and OSU"s groundbreaking work in the field of mmW/THz phenomenology, imaging, and spectroscopy. The combination of innovative software and hardware solutions proposed dramatically increases the size of problem which is tractable with current technologies. This enables the fidelity required when modeling in this band while still obtaining information about objects much larger than a wavelength. By adopting a plug-and-play architecture, the framework will then be expanded to include other models. IERUS/OSU will also perform verification and validation analyses.
