Abstract
The Foliage Abstraction RF Multiscale Estimation Rendering (FARMER) framework will perform high fidelity simulations of heavy foliage environments using a novel multiscale approach, dramatically extending the capabilities of existing foliage modeling tools and integrating existing computational electromagnetics (CEM) solutions. FARMER will use domain decomposition and an innovative scattering distribution function to support a multiscale methodology that has not previously been applied to this problem. Additionally, FARMER will use a pipeline architecture (PA) and software engineering best practices to facilitate integration of existing models. The proposed FARMER framework is a computationally scalable solution for modeling radio frequency (RF) propagation in complex, high foliage environments not possible with current methodologies.
