FDTD++ is an ambitious project, with a number of goals. These include, but are not limited to:
- The most fully-featured electromagnetics software available
- The most advanced Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) software, implementing the most recent advancements in academic and government research
- The most efficient FDTD software available, with strong scalability
- Cleanly written, and self-explanatorily with open C++ source code, such that it is suitable for academic and government research
With such ambitious goals, FDTD++ is constantly in development. Because of the competition with other software providers, and the fact that many features in development are the result of novel research, features in development are kept secret until they are actually released.
