Northrop Grumman Installs Simulator System

Wednesday, December 12, 2001
Northrop Grumman Corporation's Amherst Systems unit has completed the installation of an Electronic Support Measures (ESM) Target Generator System (TGS) at the U.S. Navy's Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) on Andros Island in the Bahamas. The system generates simulated radar threat emissions and can emulate any known friendly or enemy radar system. Developed as part of AUTEC's Improvement and Modernization Program, the ESM TGS can emulate up to 64 threat radar modes dynamically. The system is also completely reprogrammable, a key distinguishing feature. "The ESM TGS system represents a major enhancement to the Navy range's ESM test and evaluation capability, particularly for advanced receivers located on ships, helicopters, aircraft and submarines," said Dr. Edward Eberl, president of Amherst Systems. "Our system meets or exceeds all requirements associated with the ESM TGS installation, including delivery ahead of schedule." The contract was managed by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division, Newport, R.I.
