Remcom provides innovative EM simulation and wireless propagation tools as well as expertise that can be leveraged in consulting partnerships. In addition to our software products, our Government Services Division provides crucial support to the Department of Defense, providing high-quality analysis, solving challenging technical problems, and developing and maintaining high-fidelity computational capabilities in the area of EM propagation for government software applications.
The EMPIRE API
Remcom’s work in government contracting includes the development and maintenance of the Electromagnetic Propagation Integrated Resource Environment (EMPIRE), a custom API that grants users easy and direct access to a wealth of electromagnetic propagation prediction models. EMPIRE employs a suite of intelligent propagation tools incorporating a variety of environmental data sources such as Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED), weather forecast data from standard sources such as the Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA) MM5 model and the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) COAMPS model, and other data sources valid for radio frequency from 100 KHz to 300 GHz. EMPIRE is designed to be used as a calculation engine within government software applications, known as Tactical Decision Aids (TDAs), offering both C and XML-based interfaces. A number of government TDAs currently use EMPIRE in this capacity to perform high-fidelity electromagnetic propagation predictions and analysis, and this list continues to grow.
Electromagnetic Studies, Analysis, and Software Development
Remcom also offers a variety of services to government agencies in the field of electromagnetic modeling and simulation. This ranges from the performance of scientific research into complex phenomena using our vast suite of EM and EM propagation software tools, to the development of new tools to solve issues in the research and development, acquisition, and operational domains. Remcom has had a very successful track record in performance of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contracts. We have also performed in numerous other capacities in prime and subcontracting, leveraging our expertise in EM modeling and simulation from both commercial and government work to provide the highest quality products and services.
