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) is developing a new Jamming Effect Simulation and Synchronization (JESS) system based on our physics-based RF propagation simulation software and robust prediction and synchronization of jamming effects. The innovation in physics-based, Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA)-compliant electronic warfare (EW) object models and a robust prediction algorithm will enable JESS to overcome inherent latencies of distributed networked test and training environments and provide consistent, realistic, jamming effect replications with propagation and attenuation 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 demonstrated the feasibility of JESS by designing, developing, and integrating a proof-of-concept prototype for distributed simulations with 1-meter aircraft position prediction accuracy. 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 the Joint Integrated Mission Model (JIMM).
