Northrop Grumman Corp. will provide an enhanced tool that aims to support warfare systems at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center under the U.S. General Services Administration’s Alliant indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity contract.
New features added to the combat electromagnetic environment simulator work to optimize the equipment functions used to create artificial environments used for war exercises, according to a Northrop statement.
Joe Downie, Northrop’s Amherst Systems site director, said the enhancement is meant to assist the center on its various test capabilities and “represents the latest in a long history of CEESIM systems in use at Warner Robins.”
The upgrade of Northrop’s CEESIM systems is intended to speed up the programming of threat emitters for the WR-ALC to save time and cost in operating its laboratories.
A digital hardware and subsystem included in the new mechanism will work to boost the performance of the center’s simulation control network and maintain and reprogram other combat systems of certain aircraft.
