AAI awarded $9.7m for US Air Force EW simulator
AAI Test & Training, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. company, announced today that it has been awarded $9.7 million to deliver an electronic warfare (EW) radio frequency (RF) simulator for the US Air Force's EW Avionics Integration Support Facility (EWAISF). Located at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia, the EWAISF facility tests critical components, subsystems and systems for compatibility and performance, as well as evaluates hardware and software interactions in both EW systems and integrated suites.
AAI's advanced architecture utilizes multiple, high-fidelity synthetic stimulus instruments to replicate an operationally realistic electromagnetic environment that EW systems might face during combat missions. The simulator will be integrated onto the larger EWAISF Simulator Network for simultaneous testing of multiple EW systems.
"We have a trusted, longstanding reputation in the industry for complex and capable test systems that enable our customers to embark on missions with confidence in their critical systems," says AAI Test & Training Senior Vice President and General Manager Bob Peters. "Our EW RF simulator will emulate military and commercial emitters, both scanning and fixed, to create a highly realistic test scenario for the EWAISF's users."
