Simulator Will Replicate Combat Mission Environment For
Accurate System Testing
AAI Test & Training has been awarded a $9.7 million contract
to deliver an electronic warfare (EW) radio frequency (RF)
simulator for the U.S. Air Force's EW Avionics Integration Support
Facility (EWAISF), the company said Monday. Located at Robins Air
Force Base in Georgia, the EWAISF facility tests critical
components, subsystems and systems for compatibility and
performance, as well as evaluates hardware and software
interactions in both EW systems and integrated suites.
AAI's advanced architecture utilizes multiple, high-fidelity
synthetic stimulus instruments to replicate an operationally
realistic electromagnetic environment that EW systems might face
during combat missions. The simulator will be integrated onto the
larger EWAISF Simulator Network for simultaneous testing of
multiple EW systems.
"We have a trusted, longstanding reputation in the industry for
complex and capable test systems that enable our customers to
embark on missions with confidence in their critical systems," says
AAI Test & Training Senior Vice President and General Manager
Bob Peters. "Our EW RF simulator will emulate military and
commercial emitters, both scanning and fixed, to create a highly
realistic test scenario for the EWAISF's users."
