Abstract
HyPerComp proposes to build on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG)-based high order accurate broadband electromagnetics environment TEMPUS to provide modeling and simulation support to Navy’s interests in the design of efficient small antennas. TEMPUS is a complete industrial grade CEM environment that includes all aspects of a CEM simulation such as CAD geometry modeling/repair, unstructured gridding for full-scale targets with general materials, parallel run set up (for PC- and workstation clusters) and higher order accurate solvers for Maxwell''s equations, and postprocessing utilities for solution visualization and extraction of final results like antenna radiation patterns, and bistatic/monostatic scattering RCS, SAR images, and range profiles. The goal is to mature TEMPUS for modeling small antennas with metamatrials as well as coupling of the full wave solver with innovative non-Foster matching active circuits to candidate low-profile, conformal, wideband concepts in current vogue.
