We propose development of a software capability which, based on use of accurate and efficient exact-physics computational electromagnetics (CEM) solvers together with CAD-import (Computer Aided Design) and direct CAD-to-EM capabilities, will enable optimization of the properties of on-platform pRFID tag/reader antenna systems. For accuracy and modeling flexibility the proposed codes are based on MathSys'fast, high-order frequency--domain algorithms in conjunction with a number of highly significant innovations. The resulting solvers will accurately and efficiently simulate generation,propagation and scattering of waves within and around complex rotorcraft structures -- while accounting in a physically exact manner for scattering, transmission and absorption by complex metallic,dielectric and magnetic structures, as required for accurate modeling of pRFID tag/reader systems.
