Paper Abstract

Applications seeking to exploit electromagnetic scattering characteristics of an imaging or detection problem typically require a large number of electromagnetic simulations in order to understand relevant object phenomena. It has been shown in a previous work that deep learning may be used to increase the efficiency of creating such datasets by providing estimations comparable to simulation results. In this work, we further investigate the utility of deep learning for electromagnetic simulation prediction by adding to the existing training and testing dataset while also incorporating additional material properties. Specifically, we explore using artificial neural networks to learn the connection between a generic object and its resulting bistatic radar cross section, thereby removing the need to repeatedly perform timely simulations. While deep learning can be seen as a computationally expensive technique, this cost is only experienced during the training of the system and not subsequently in the acquisition of results. The goal of this work is to further investigate the applicability of deep learning for electromagnetic simulation prediction as well as its potential limitations. Additionally, performance is compared for different data pre-processing techniques focused on data reduction.
