The U.S. Navy has accepted delivery of a Northrop Grumman-built multispectral test platform designed to prepare the service branch’s F-35 aircraft for complex missions in electromagnetic spectrum environments.
Northrop said Tuesday it shipped the Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator, Signal Measurement System and the Synchronizer Controller System to the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division in Point Mogu, Calif.
CEESIM is designed to simulate multiple radio frequency emitters simultaneously and equipped with the Advanced Pulse Generation technology that works to generate electronic warfare mission scenarios.
SMS employs recording, signal measurement and analysis tools built to validate a test environment and examine the performance of a system.
SCS consists of threat radars, communications signals and electro-optical/infra-red signatures intended to program and execute an integrated training scenario.
