Is it a Polywell in an unusual polyhedral configuration of sorts?

I thought teh name was for a polywell (-like device). If nothing else this could be seen as replication of the results EMC2 has acheived over the last few years.

It's just numerical simulation followed by "more detailed" modeling and numerical simulation. Still, NASA looking at it is good!
