Tank Active Protection System Simulation Software

Keywords: Radar

An integrated engagement simulation between a semi-automatic command to line of sight (SACLOS) anti-tank missile, or rocket propelled grenade and a tank equipped with an active protection system with both soft-kill and hard-kill countermeasures. The tank’s soft kill assets include obscurants and an IR “hot-spot” jammer. The tank’s hard-kill asset is a trainable launcher with suitable munitions. Staring radar and infrared arrays on the tank detect and track incoming threats and the fire-control computer assesses the scenario and reacts as appropriate with countermeasures. The threat has both a radar cross section as well as a radiance intensity signature for the radar and IR sensors. ILAPS uses an imaging tracker to imitate the operator and a missile beacon tracker to follow the missile and steer it towards the target. In RPG engagements the guidance is disabled and the RPG must be fired with the appropriate elevation and lead angle. The infrared signature of the tank is specified in detail with the TESS IR Profiler included in the product. Since ILAPS was designed to support active protection system development, there are actually two staring array radar systems (one pulse Doppler and one FMCW), two fire-control computers and two launchers so that the soft-kill and hard-kill countermeasure systems can be developed and tested independently.

Imaging Infrared Anti-Ship Missile Simulation Software

The propagation environment includes user-enterable IR attenuation characteristics and background, sea and atmospheric radiant intensity signatures. The ship features a user-selectable automatic evasive manoeuvre which is triggered at missile seeker turn-on. An integrated engagement simulation between an anti-ship heat-seeking missile and a target ship. The TESS Sea IR sub-group covers passive infrared guided anti-ship missiles.


Surveillance Radar Simulation Software

The on-board jammer is capable of generating a number of techniques including multiple false range targets, inverse gain jamming, Doppler noise and frequency modulation techniques. An integrated engagement simulation in which a stationary pulsed, or pulse Doppler surveillance radar engages a target aircraft employing electronic countermeasures.


RF Anti-Ship Missile Simulation Software

An integrated engagement simulation between one or two anti-ship missiles with active radar homing and a target ship. The ship also features a user selectable automatic evasive manoeuvre which is triggered at missile seeker turn-on. The ship can employ active on-board jamming and may deploy up to six passive decoys. Can be fixed or trainable and supports both rocket and mortar launched decoys.
