CEESIM Systems Features Advance Pulse Generation Technology
Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems has delivered a Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) to Saab in Sweden for use in testing the JAS39 GRIPEN multirole fighter.
The CEESIM system includes an advanced pulse generation (APG) capability, which uses the latest digital technology to generate advanced waveforms. It also features the ability to perform digital modeling of multiple active electronically scanned array (AESA) antennas. When coupled with CEESIM’s angle-of-arrival modeling and controlled by a state-of-the-art graphical user interface, the system is immediately transformed into the most powerful, advanced simulator available. The event marks the first international delivery of a CEESIM system with APG technology.
“This delivery represents the continuation of a long-standing relationship with Saab and confirms our dedication to the success of their mission,” said Joe Downie, Site Director for Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems. “CEESIM’s high-speed direct digital synthesiser technology brings significant advantages to Saab, including higher modulation sample rates, wide bandwidth precision intrapulse modulation, higher frequency resolution and accuracy, and reduced calibration time. The APG utilises a modular design for improved maintainability. All of this leads to lower cost and increased system reliability.”
