Radio frequency threat simulator from Northrop Grumman to be used at Warner Robins ALSNews
June 04, 2013
BUFFALO, N.Y. Northrop Grumman Corp. will deliver its enhanced Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) system to officials at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC). The company won a task order from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) under the Alliant indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
The CEESIM is an advanced technology simulator, which creates complex dynamic electromagnetic environments to simulate true-to-war environments. It includes an updated user interface that enables complex emitters programming to be more intuitive while allowing an operator to customize the interface for specific needs. It also includes digital hardware to produce greater pulse density for advanced threats.
The system has angle-of-arrival radio frequency simulation techniques such as phase, amplitude, and time difference of arrival. It is an off-the-shelf solution that can integrate into the current Simulation Network lab control system at WR-ALC. It also supports software maintenance and reprogramming of multiple electronic combat systems, such as those onboard C-130 and F-16 aircraft.
