Signature predictions for full-scale vehicles at Ka-band frequencies can require weeks or months of CPU time for completion; consequently, high performance computers are required in order for prediction codes to be useful in simulation support. Recent advances in Commodity-off-the-Shelf (COTS) personal computer (PC) hardware along with open-source operating systems such as Linux allow for a cost-effective solution to computational requirements routinely encountered in signature analysis and synthetic data generation in support of hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulation. This paper presents the development and evaluation of a Pile-of-PC (PoPC) cluster in support of full-scale, high-frequency signature predictions.
