Abstract
In this effort we propose to develop an integrated analysis and design environment for the rigorous electromagnetic analysis and design of complex shipboard RF interactions for low frequencies (30MHz-2GHz). This integrated environment will include theability to predict the scattering and EMI coupling of RF apertures and include a both a wide variety of antenna types as well as complex topside electromagnetic environments. To this end, we will expand and integrate (1) our novel application specifichardware system capable of performing rigorous electromagnetic simulations in a fraction of the time required by conventional approaches, including high performance computer systems; and (2) our 3D computer aided design (CAD) graphical interface. Theultimate development of this integrated environment is a topside design tool for ship design engineers that can be implemented using an ordinary PC. Commercial applications such as the communications industry will benefit directly from this softwaremodule in solving EMI/Coupling problems on a low cost platform.
