The systems integration laboratory (SIL) is the first touch point where defensive aid systems are integrated and tested. Verification of their effectiveness at this stage is crucial. ESL offers electronic warfare solutions designed for the specific test and evaluation requirements of the SIL or test facility user.

Hydra SIL is a laser warning receiver stimulator that is man portable and battery powered. The MEON SIL is used for stimulation and radiometric measurement of missile warning system and infrared countermeasures. Both systems are manufactured as ruggedized, military specification equipment and can be enhanced with software tools for threat reprogramming and full remote operation.Laboratory Joint Service Electronic Combat Systems Tester, or , is a fully programmable stimulus and measurement system, scaled to fit into a standard, 19-inch rack.Advanced Architecture Phase Amplitude and Time Simulator, or , is a real-time radar threat simulator for military aircraft that provides precise control of time, amplitude and phase angle of arrival, as well as a large threat emitter library.Other products that fit into this category include:

- Advanced Boresight Equipment, or ABE®
- Hydra v3/v4
- Infrared (IR) Baringa
- Universal Test Set, or UTS
- Ultraviolet (UV) Baringa

product index overview

The Hydra SIL (systems integration laboratory) is an advanced stimulator of laser warning receivers by simulation of complex laser beamrider, designator and range finder threats via a minimum set of two, 905 nanometer (nm) (three degrees and 10 degrees field of view) and one, 1,550 nm (three degrees field of view) Class 3B laser subsystems. It is used for SIL testing.

ESL has designed several products that enable technicians and logisticians to quickly and confidently assess the mission readiness of electronic warfare components.



We maintain an inventory of spare parts on-site and accept payment for these via credit card to ensure that system downtime is limited.Two repair depots ensure that customers can dispatch their products quickly and get them back into service as soon as possible. ESL maintains a repair centre at its corporate headquarters in the UK, and North American customers can access the repair centre located at AAI’s corporate headquarters.


product home

ESL is a leading provider of total spectrum electronic warfare stimulation solutions that deliver accurate and reliable results to military customers worldwide, including government research institutes, system integrators, logisticians and front line ground crews.


front line

Before air crews take to the skies or land/maritime vehicles enter harm’s way, independent electronic warfare system verification and confidence testing are vital for mission success. ESL’s front line test solutions complement onboard, built-in test equipment for proven verification of defensive aid suite readiness before operational engagement.
