  3. Gradient Index Metamaterial Integrating Sphere

    SBC: Oxford Defense North Carolina LLC            Topic: AF182036

    Oxford Defense North Carolina, LLC will design, simulate, and demonstrate a metamaterial for use in a microwave integrating sphere. This device is similar to optical integrating spheres by causing incident radiation from a device under test to be uniformly distributed over the inside surface via multiple scattering. We will undertake the design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of a m ...

  10. Parallel GPU Processing for Large Scale State Filters

    SBC: Physical Numerics, LLC            Topic: AF182028

    State vector estimation from time series measurements is a key process in tracking and trajectory estimation, among other applications. We propose a GPU-accelerated software package for Batch Estimation, to be developed in C++ and OpenCL for distributed processing across multiple GPUs with user-defined state vector definitions and measurement models. The proposed architecture is designed for simul ...
