Abstract
IERUS Technologies will provide a unique capability to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) allowing dramatic enhancement of simulation speed and accuracy for RF signature characterization of missile defense targets. Not only does IERUS have a detailed understanding of the Missile Defense RF signature modeling problem, but IERUS is on the cutting edge of RF prediction software. IERUS personnel have many years of experience in target signature characterization. IERUS has developed a detailed understanding of the limitations posed by current packages and the impact of the resulting limitations on BMDS M & S. IERUS is prepared to address them by enhancing and commercializing our computational electromagnetics package. Designed for optimal performance on modern COTS hardware, our approach solves electrically large problems, rigorously and expeditiously. With this software package, MDA will be able to predict the RF signatures of complex targets with complex features. Unlike current COTS packages, our proposed approach will be able to produce X-band models in a reasonable run time (comparable to Xpatch) without the large computational footprint.
