Predicting RCS of Missile Test Targets

Under a current MDA Phase II SBIR project (Contract No. HQ0147-13-C-7636, Topic No. MDA11-039), Virtual EM has been developing a simulation tool based on VirAntenn™ software for predicting radar cross-section of reentry vehicles and other targets of interest to MDA. Particular feature of the software package is the ability to model arbitrary 3D objects with metallic and dielectric parts and to be scalable on computational machines employing multi-core CPUs and GPUs for hardware acceleration. The code employs a hybrid FE-BI formulation and a full-developed GUI with 3D schematic capture including standard CAD import/export features.
