Paper Abstract

Successful modeling and simulation of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems requires not only the inclusion of the relevant C4ISR processes involved in the problem under study but also inclusion of the physics behind some of the simulation objects. The electromagnetic performance of the various sensors present in the simulation and the electromagnetic effects caused by the platforms on which the sensors reside are examples. The physical science necessary to simulate such physical effects is called Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) and can provide high quality performance data capable of enhancing the accuracy and value of C4ISR simulations. Unfortunately the simulation of these effects from first principles cannot be done in even near real time. Model Abstraction needs to be applied to such phenomenological simulations to extract out data of the required accuracy in reasonable simulation time. This paper reviews state-of-the-art CEM with a view towards stimulating the development of those Model Abstraction techniques required to incorporate CEM phenomenology into the C4ISR modeling and simulation world.
