Automating the design and evaluation of electronic warfare and radar systems is essential today. Every new system must be able to defeat threats posed by adversaries whose capabilities are constantly improving, operating over increasingly-wide bandwidths, and spanning frequencies from HF through at least 18 GHz. Without automating the design process, it may be impossible to meet these challenges in a realistic time at an acceptable cost.
In addition, all new EW systems are ultimately subjected to enormously-expensive range testing in “real-world” operating environments. As there are more EW systems requiring testing than there are test ranges to accommodate them, when a new system reaches the range it must deliver the desired performance the first time. This webinar describes automation of EW and radar system design and its benefits, and provides insight into how automation can most effectively be implemented.
