Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has been awarded a task order by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide its enhanced Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) system to the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC). This is a single award under the Alliant indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
The Northrop Grumman CEESIM is an advanced technology simulator that generates complex dynamic electromagnetic environments to simulate true-to-war conditions. The new system includes an updated user interface that makes programming of complex emitters more intuitive while allowing the operator to customize the interface to suit specific needs. It also includes latest-generation digital hardware that is optimized to produce greater pulse density for advanced threats.
"This represents the latest in a long history of CEESIM systems in use at Warner Robins," said Joe Downie, site director of Northrop Grumman's Buffalo-based Amherst Systems business unit. "This enhanced system ensures that the Air Logistics Center will continue to have a versatile test asset to support a variety of electronic warfare systems."
The CEESIM provides angle-of-arrival radio frequency simulation techniques including phase, amplitude and time difference of arrival. It is an off-the-shelf solution that will seamlessly integrate into the existing Simulation Network lab control system at WR-ALC. The system also supports software maintenance and reprogramming of multiple electronic combat systems, including those onboard C-130 and F-16 aircraft.
With the CEESIM's new digital subsystem and updated graphical user interface, the process of programming the most realistic and advanced threat emitters is simplified, which will result in overall cost and time savings for WR-ALC.
