Abstract
The overall objective of this STTR project is to develop a comprehensive CAD environment for design and optimization of antennas and arrays on complex platforms such as topsides of naval surface combatants. EMAG Technologies Inc. has teamed up with the University of Michigan to develop a novel solution for placement of antennas on such platforms using a number of new physics-based genetic algorithm. The proposed solution involves fast electromagnetic solvers based on frequency domain and time domain integral equation techniques accelerated by fast multipole methods and other techniques. The resulting simulation and optimization codes will be fully integrated within EMAG"s EM.CUBE software framework complete with 3-D CAD modelers and extensive data visualization tools.
