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 between the various RF systems. The cost of providing numerous modifications to operational systems and the losses in efficiency resulting from the presence of interference represents a serious problem to numerous military and commercial organizations. Our team proposes to develop a software tool named Electromagnetic Interference Toolkit (EMIT) for predicting interference between radiating and receiving RF systems. The tool will consist of a graphical user interface (GUI) and underlying computational engines. The GUI (iEMIT) will pass user specified inputs to the computational engine (EMIT), will provide visualization of data, and will interface with a full wave solver for the generation of coupling data. During the Phase I, we will develop the architecture and implementation plan for the EMIT software, develop proof of concept modules for the computational engines, and validate those modules. The Phase II will focus on developing a GUI and implementing the proof-of-concept codes developed under the Phase I as robust engineering codes.
