Scenario-based RF signal generator for interactive radio frequency testing environments: Page 2 of 2

IZT and LOG.IN have jointly announced the availability of EXERCISE-RF. This scenario-based RF signal generator is designed for interactive radio frequency testing environments and can generate a real-time radio frequency spectrum.
validating the COMINT and SIGINT operative capability of a mission platform. It can be also used for EW, COMINT, SIGINT or ISTAR training.

With EXERCISE-RF, the user can play, pause, and resume the scenario. He can also record the scenario and play from any given point. The scenario-based RF signal generator is fully DIS (Distributed Interactive Simulation) and HLA (High Level Architecture) compliant, which means that it can be integrated into larger distributed-simulation environments.

On the software side, EXERCISE-RF is based on EXERCISE, a family of modeling and simulation products from LOG.IN. The hardware is comprised of a standard computer and one or more of IZT’s signal generator platforms IZT S1000. Since each unit has two independent RF outputs, three generators are needed to stimulate a five channel direction finder.

EXERCISE-RF covers a frequency range of 9 kHz to 3 GHz with an instantaneous bandwidth of 120 MHz. Features include multi-channel 3D direction finder testing and a TDOA location-finding platform.

EXERCISE-RF computes in real time the distance, RF inter-visibility, azimuth and elevation of each of the entities with respect to the DUT (device under test).
