Visualising electronic warfare: The importance of modelling and simulation

Control and domination of the electromagnetic spectrum is as much a part of modern warfare as air superiority and coast guard. Electronic Warfare (EW) is the mission area tasked with establishing and maintaining an advantageous position in the electromagnetic domain, protecting access and use of the spectrum while denying and degrading adversary use and access.

The pace of change is so rapid that military and defense manufacturers around the world must keep up with extensive technological advances in equipment that can operate in complex and dynamic environments, making traditional training and testing methods no longer feasible. A new operational reality. As such, the future of EW requires further development and adoption of modeling and simulation tools capable of conceptualizing the non-physical effects of the electromagnetic spectrum and replicating his EW operations in real life to meet the challenges of the modern combat environment. is.

A primary goal of modeling and simulation in EW is to provide a realistic operational environment to prepare for the challenges that today’s modern fighter jets can encounter. Sophisticated simulation techniques are utilized by the military to adapt training and mission rehearsal delivery as relevant to modern and complex operations. A simulation training system provides a real-life 3D experience with virtual prototypes of weapons and systems to meet the latest threats. This allows users to become proficient in a wider range of emergency scenarios that would be impractical or dangerous to train under real conditions.

Effective training of fighter pilots and other EW system operators has long been recognized as a challenge. Commanders and teams who utilize simulation training will have an edge in neutralizing and reducing enemy combat capabilities by gaining a deeper understanding of how weapons and systems operate in real-world scenarios. As both simulation technology and his EW sector move forward and evolve, equipment manufacturers and software developers must continue to work together to develop software tools that are representative of products and systems in the field. This reinforces the immersive nature of the simulation and makes it as realistic as possible to prepare for the challenges EW operators may face.

Developing and deploying modern EW systems is complex and expensive, requiring a disciplined testing approach to ensure the final solution meets the operational requirements of the user. Modeling and simulation are not only used for training, but also allow new technologies and solutions to be digitally generated and tested in real-life situations that emulate today’s combat environments. Robust simulation provides the safest, practical, and most affordable means to test and validate the effectiveness of advanced EW equipment.

Validation of requirements and specifications during the initial design process also ensures that system features and functions include a wide range of mission needs. Digital modeling enables developers to examine new and existing systems, analyze functional improvements, identify deficiencies, and ensure final solutions meet mission objectives. By creating virtual prototypes before building a system, suppliers can quickly and cost-effectively test multiple configurations to determine customer preferences, thus reducing the time it takes to bring the final product to market. Reduce risk, cost and time.

Future EW solutions must be able to perform, operate and adapt in complex electromagnetic environments. You need to maintain interoperability with other systems and upgrade software and hardware quickly to keep up with evolving near-peer threats. As your EW capabilities become more complex, your training and testing infrastructure must evolve and scale simultaneously to outperform your opponents. The ability to simulate modern, congested environments ensures that defense suppliers can deliver best-in-class his EW solutions while the military fully understands how to maximize operational advantage.
