Modeling and Simulation Technologies to Support Physics Based Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar Models in Training Systems
ABSTRACT: DRAC proposes to design simulation components that model Active Electronically Scanned (AESA) radars and the countermeasures including jamming to which they may be exposed. These components will be designed to interoperate with other simulations via standard distributed simulations protocols; implementations of these protocols will be updated to provide support for representing the complex, dynamic AESA radar beam patterns. These high-performance simulation components will operate at interactive framerates to support training. DRAC also proposes to develop a prototype implementation and to present test results of that implementation in the Phase I effort. All these efforts will leverage an existing and proven government-owned distributed simulation framework, so that the majority of effort is concentrated on developing the advanced capabilities required. The proposed effort is innovative in leveraging the high-performance multi-threading capabilities of the framework to support the complex requirements of the AESA model, and in using capabilities of the various simulation protocols in innovative ways to represent dynamic beam patterns without requiring high network bandwidth. BENEFIT: The primary benefit to the proposed solution is its low-cost and flexible implementation using a government-owned framework for distributed simulation. The capability to simulate AESA radars will have wide application in military training and acquisition as well as in training for commercial aviation.
