AbstractModeling and simulation tools fill a critical role in system integration by allowing engineers to predict potential EMI problems and explore solutions prior to fielding of the platform. While providing a powerful and necessary capability, the use of these simulation tools is often hindered by the inaccessibility of suitable RF system performance data required for the simulations. Equipment databases are available that contain the required data, but extraction of this information for use in simulation tools is not only manual and time consuming, but requires a significant level of expertise. One such database is the JSC Equipment, Tactical and Space (JETS) database maintained by the Joint Spectrum Center. The goal of this project is to take advantage of equipment databases for reliable cosite interference modeling and simulation by enhancing the cosite simulation tool EMIT to enable it to take full advantage of existing RF equipment databases such as JETS. Our integrated approach will enable EMIT to automatically extract the required data from the database, create the necessary computational models and perform the simulation for predicting platform EMI.
