The IDAL, in partnership with Air Force System Program Offices, is being employed to mature and integrate the EW suites for multiple existing platforms, such as the B-52 Stratofortress, the F-15 Strike Eagle, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the facility sponsored hardware-in-the-loop simulator research through the Air Force SBIR program, resulting in the development and transition of the Advanced Dynamic RF Simulator (ADARS) variant of the CEESIM
to the F/A-22 Raptor program, providing a critical integration and test capability for the Raptor's EW and avionics systems.
According to a company spokesperson, Amherst chose to integrate the CEESIM, its biggest product, first, but will eventually adapt all its simulators to the network.
Right now CEESIM runs off a canned program, so now it's basically being remotely controlled from a different location.
The Navy augmented an Amherst Systems CEESIM
threat generator with high-power transmitters and antennas to enable it to mimic up to 64 threat signals (from a threat library of 10,000 signal types) simultaneously across the range.
(Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator) is the most advanced RF EW threat simulator available, designed to generate realistic simulations of all known radar signals for testing electronic warfare receivers and processor systems in a laboratory, anechoic chamber or fielded environment.
For example, Amherst Systems' CEESIM
128D and 128P have potential in this area, as does the Micro-AMES from Advanced Systems Development.

The most recent CEESIM
delivery went to Edwards AFB for use in the giant anechoic test chamber opened there last year.
