Abstract
A WNW Host Simulator (WHS) can be considered an indoor open-air range in which a JTRS radio is given the various electronic stimuli it needs to "think" it is flight operation over a geographic area. The JTR Set and its waveforms are then "operated" in simulated conditions and its performance and integration with the host platform measured. The goal is to reduce the risk to flight testing by ensuring the JTR Set is ready for flight and properly integrated with the host platform. The WHS can gather test data not possible in a range environment. Use of the WHS prior to flight greatly reduces the risk of incurring nonproductive flight test hours. It can be used to identify problem areas requiring more attention can be used to troubleshoot and isolate platform issues during integration. Another benefit of the WHS is the ability to precisely control and repeat test events. Developing a simulator to support the JTRS AMF program poses technical, cost, and schedule challenges due to evolving design of the program and continued development of WNW functionality. DataSoft has devised on innovative approach to significantly reduce this risk and develop a simulator to support critical AMF JTRS test phases.
