DARPA Selects Epirus for EM Waveform Simulations

Jan. 8, 2022
Epirus, an advanced technology company with experience in phased-array radar systems, has been contracted by DARPA along with GTRC for the development of practical EM waveform models.

Epirus, a company involved in the development of solutions for directed-energy and power-management systems, was selected alongside the Georgia Tech Research Corp. (GTRC) by DARPA for the creation of software to simulate electromagnetic (EM) waveform behavior in these systems. The contract is part of DARPA’s Waveform Agile Radio-frequency Directed Energy (WARDEN) Rapid Assessment and Numerical Generation of Electromagnetic Response (RANGER) project. The software, intended for the rapid computation of EM propagation effects, will serve both government and commercial applications. The contract will be served by Epirus (see the figure) working closely with DARPA and GTRC to develop practical computer models of EM waveforms.

As part of the project, Epirus and GTRC will develop algorithms based on artificial intelligence (AI) and mathematical techniques to predict the behavior of EM waveforms through different propagating media. The simulation approach and models should be applicable on standard computers for affordability. Dr. Bo Marr, Epirus's Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder, says: “This critical partnership with DARPA will allow Epirus to fast-track innovation to deliver upgraded products and support a wider customer base across industries. Agility and innovation are at the core of Epirus—we’re not taking our eyes off the horizon and are driving lasting innovation to solve tomorrow’s problems, today. I look forward to continuing our work with DARPA as we bring our transformative technology to new markets and contribute to DARPA’s critical mission of preventing strategic surprise.”
