Research Institution
We plan to develop a Virtual Radio Frequency (RF) Environment for testing Command, Control, Communications (C3) systems. Testing the large tactical C3 systems requires fielding hundreds of nodes and providing thousands of signals/messages to meet the operational requirements. This is very expensive and often the large numbers of systems are not available. Our Virtual RF Environment (VRE) would allow a few representative C3 systems to be immersed in an environment of hundreds of virtual emitters and exercised through various scenarios of operation. This virtual environment will interact with real radios/communications systems to stress them as they would be in the real world. Thus, the VRE will permit Hardware-in-the-loop and Software-in-the-loop testing.
