Verus Research is Exploring Interactions Between Airborne Electronic Components and Their Environments

Verus Research has recently been awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research contract supporting the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at Patuxent River, MD.  The program will study “Electromagnetic (EM) Interactions Between Cables, Antennas, and Their Environments.” The objective is to create a simulation tool for analyzing Navy aircraft to ensure they have sufficient electromagnetic compatibility as well as resilience in the face of electromagnetic interference and external EM radiation, including electromagnetic pulse, high-intensity radiated fields, and lightning.

To meet these requirements, Verus Research has teamed with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) to develop a set of software tools that will analyze these interactions, from a simple multi-conductor transmission line to complex cable networks and exchanges with antennas in complex aircraft environments.

Chief Technology Officer Dr. J. Mark DelGrande cited the award as another example of how “Verus Research’s world-class EM modeling and simulation capabilities can transition smoothly into adjacent technical domains, producing high-value outcomes for our customers.”
