CrossFlux is an electromagnetic software tool capable of combining scattering from multiple objects (simulated with separate codes) to form the scattering of the composite target.

CrossFlux is a hybrid electromagnetic scattering code. Hybrid codes combine scattering from multiple objects to form the scattering of the composite target. The CrossFlux hybrid code based upon the "cross-flux" formulation first stated by G. A. Deschamps. Like other hybrid codes, CrossFlux requires that the composite target is broken up into distinct parts. Those parts are then simulated with other codes which provide the inputs for CrossFlux.


CrossFlux has been used to generate signatures for complex objects where no single code is optimal. For example, when analyzing the scattering from a large object, the returns from small features may not be well represented using an asympotic solver. Applying a full-wave solver would capture all the returns from the small parts, but it could quickly become computationally intractable. CrossFlux allows the large part to be simulated with an asympototic solver of your choice and the small parts to be separately modeled with a full-wave solver of your choice.


Accurate combination of separate, independent, part simulations.


The major benefit of CrossFlux over other hybrid methods is that CrossFlux allows for interaction in the near-field of the individual parts of a composite target. It is fully compatible with the Xpatch® and SAF electromagnetic simulation tools.
