    The Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) Laboratory is used for full-wave, frequency domain electromagnetic simulations. It has been used to support Shuttle, ISS, Constellation, and commercial entities such as SpaceX and Orbital Sciences Corporation. The lab houses a computer cluster that currently contains 476 processors and 1.95 TB of RAM. The CEM software being used is a government use code called GEMINI (Generalized ElectroMagnetic INteractIons), which is being developed at the NASA Johnson Space Center.
