AAI Test & Training has been awarded a contract to deliver an electronic warfare (EW) radio frequency (RF) simulator for the US Air Force’s (USAF) EW avionics integration support facility (EWAISF).

The company will use multiple, high-fidelity synthetic stimulus instruments to create an operationally realistic electromagnetic environment faced during combat missions.

The simulator will be integrated onto the larger EWAISF simulator network for simultaneous testing of multiple EW systems.

AAI Test & Training senior vice-president and general manager Bob Peters said the EW RF simulator will simulate military and commercial emitters to create a realistic test scenario for the EWAISF’s users.

The EWAISF, located at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, US, tests critical components, subsystems and systems and also evaluates hardware and software interactions in EW systems and integrated suites.
