Northrop Grumman has developed a pulse generation system for the company’s simulation products that used to replicate combat electromagnetic environments.
The Advanced Pulse Generator is built with a direct digital synthesizer for creating radio frequency waveforms and is intended for laboratories, anechoic chambers and military testing facilities, Northrop said Monday.
Joe Downie, a site director at Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems, said the business designed the technology to address military customers’ RF threat detection requirements.
According to the company, APG uses a modular open architecture and is intended to be compatible with existing and newer electronic warfare simulation systems.
Northrop’s CEESIM simulators work to test electronic warfare warning devices, infrared or ultraviolet missile approach sensors and jamming platforms.
