Laboratory Configuration: In a laboratory configuration, the RTS has been used to generate realistic threat radar waveforms that are injected directly into the customer's Electronic Counter Counter Measures (ECCM) modeling software.
Airborne Configuration: For the airborne configuration, some components of the RTS system are mounted in the aircraft and some components are mounted in an external pod. The aircraft simulates missile flight profiles, and the RTS simulates threat radar seeker waveforms. The RTS can vary threat radar waveforms on a pulse-to-pulse basis. The RTS Airborne system can simulate a number of different missile types by varying parameters such as pulse width, pulse repetition frequency, gate size, and detection criteria.
Ground-based Configuration: In the ground-based configuration, the RTS is used to simulate anti-aircraft search and tracking radars on Air Combat Maneuvering test ranges. The RTS is mounted on a mobile platform that can be easily repositioned. The RTS generates high-powered threat radar waveforms, which can vary from 2 to 18 Ghz on a pulse-to-pulse basis.
