Simulators / Emulators

TSS (Threat Signal Simulator)


The TSS, part of the EW laboratory suite, is a modular approach to generate threats for Radar & EW & ECCM waveforms using building blocks and COTS plug-in modules.

The main objective of the TSS is to create realistic signals environment.

The major applications are for scientific research, signal library development, performance evaluation of both radar and EW systems, furthermore for training purpose.

TSS is frequently used combined with the Radar Target Simulator to create input signals to target illuminator radars or direction of arrival, in coherence and synchronized  association with the RTS.

The TSS is based on AWAACS™ technology developed by Synopsis Corporation Group. This solution offers unusual flexibility, broadband frequency and RF parameters with an incomparable frequency and phase and amplitude resolutions.

TASS™ (Tactical Signal Simulator)

TASS™ (Tactical Signal Simulator) generates operational situations creating in real-time, realistic environment conditions including complex waveform generations and 3D moving targets (agile trajectories of the actors), toward the system under tests.

TASS™ is dedicated to simulate, emulate, evaluate complex tactical conditions a specific real-time bidirectional interface allows access to customer's databases permitting full remote control of scenarios exploiting secret information without any data collection inside the simulator itself.

The specific Interface using an optical network of reflective memories controls the 3D real-time scenario throughout other computers additional simulators (trajectories, real pilot in cockpit ect.) or operator via joystick, trackball, etc.


RTS (Radar Target Simulator)


RTS design is based on the capture of the radar emission in order to analyse it and generate radar echoes that are coherent with the radar emitted waveform.

RTS can be considered as a standalone solution or the first part of the closed-loop simulator used for jamming effectiveness analysis and works with the General Radar Simulator (GRS).

RTS can be combined with TSS, which create input signals for target illuminator radars simulation or direction of arrival in coherent and synchronized association with the TSS. 

Based on DRFM (Digital RF Memory) or PDDL (Programmable Digital Delay Line) and high-speed digital controls throughout FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and Digital Signal Processors (DSP), RTS brings a high level of flexibility and allows the following functions performed in real time:

  • Complex targets generation, coherent with radar waveform
  • False targets generation & noise jamming
  • Clutter generation with different operational modes
  • Chaff generation
  • RGPO/I jamming mode
  • VGPO/I jamming mode
  • Bin Masking
  • Inverse gain
  • Noise generation
  • And others ECM techniques implementation

The RTS is based up to 8 channels 2GHz Digital RF Memories with Doppler shift modulation capability as fine as 1Hz resolution. Up and Down conversion are very wideband 0.1 to 100GHz, agile < 100ns and fully phase coherent.

Options are available for purchase such as extended signal memory, custom software, dedicated simulator interfaces ...

GRS (General Radar Simulator)

The GRS is an EW laboratory suite in a modular approach used to simulate dense and complex electromagnetic environment that contains radar systems, jammers and other types of radio communication systems.

GRS is a compact and flexible combination of:

  • Radar Transmitter (GRS/T) 
  • Radar Receiver (GRS/R)  
  • Radar Target Simulator (RTS) 
  • Threat Signal Simulator (TSS)

GRS & RTS work together as a closed loop simulator for jammer’s tests. TSS acts as an opened loop simulator for receiver’s tests.

Weapon Delivery & Navigation Simulator (WDNS) is also included in GRS: WDNS may be useful for navigation data coherency between simulator and SUT in a 3D dynamic scenario and for data collection and analysis.

GRS package also includes the following items:

  • Data Collection and Analysis (DCA) 
  • Computer System (CS) 
  • Measurement Instrumentation (MI)
