Paper Abstract

The EOSAEL is a state-of-the-art computer library comprised of fast-running, theoretical, semiempirical, and empirical computer programs that mathematically describe aspects of electromagnetic propagation in a battlefield environment. The 25 modules are connected through an executive routine, but often are exercised individually. The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is in the process of developing new modules for inclusion into the EOSAEL. This presentation discusses these modules and describes ARL's plans for future additions, and planned measurement programs. A program is underway to develop a user-friendly, Microsoft Windows-based interface for the EOSAEL. This interface will allow the user to set parameters by an intuitive, visual point and click method, output plots of computed results, and generate images that are easily viewed. The interface will be independent of the internal workings of the individual EOSAEL modules, and have on-line documentation for all the modules and input parameters. It will simplify setting scenario parameters common to all the modules (e.g. spectral band, range, etc.), and will provide tools to easily compare the results from the different EOSAEL modules. Interface modules are completed for all of the EOSAEL modules. This effort is part of a commercialization plan sponsored by the SBIR program.
