Physics-based Jamming Effect Simulation and Synchronization for Distributed Simulations
To address the Navy"s need for a consistent physics-based approach to replicate the effects of radio frequency (RF) jammers and radar emitters across the Information Operations Range (IOR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Jamming Effect Simulation and Synchronization (JESS) system based on our physics-based RF propagation simulation software and multiresolution ray-tracing. The innovation in physics-based, Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA)-compliant electronic warfare (EW) object models and multiresolution ray-tracing algorithm will enable JESS to overcome inherent latencies of distributed networked test and training environments and provide consistent, realistic, jamming effect replications including terrain and weather effects. As a result, JESS offers flexible EW object models with complete geometric freedom dictated by the operator and inclusion of both noise jamming and repeater jamming effects, which directly address the Navy requirements. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of JESS by designing, developing, integrating, and validating a proof-of-concept prototype for distributed simulations. In Phase II, POC plans to expand the validated Phase I design into a full-scale, high-fidelity prototype and validate and demonstrate it with TENA and Joint Integrated Mission Model (JIMM).
