Abstract
A great opportunity exists to leverage the DIS/HLA simulation environment and the HLA Federation Development Process in order to improve training and system acquisition for Intelligence and Electronic Warfare (IEW) systems. What is needed, and is proposedhere, is a more effective method to develop and represent complex scenarios encompassing realistic communications systems, complex communication networks, realistic communications content, and other RF emitter systems. Our approach leverages existingresources (web based threat data) and analysis tools (CECOM's CEF and HLA tools). The proposed scenario development process will be consistent with existing SAFOR (Semi-Automated Forces) models (e.g., OneSAF and EAGLE) and will utilize ArtificialIntelligence (AI) techniques to minimize developer workload and to enhance the realism of the simulated RF representation. The resulting RF scenarios can be used with MultiSIM-SIGINT or other IEW system models to evaluate the effectiveness of SignalIntelligence (SIGINT) systems such as Guardrail CS or the proposed Aerial Common Sensor. It can also be used for improved training for IEW system staffs.
