BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Aselsan, Turkey's high-tech electronics company, has received a Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator system from Northrop Grumman of the United States.

Northrop announced it also delivered a Signal Measurement System to the company, which Aselsan provides EW equipment for use on ground-based and maritime platforms as well as fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.

Northrop had been contracted to provide a CEESIM, an SMS and a Pulseman Portable CEESIM Simulator to Aselsan's Radar, Electronic Warfare and Intelligence Systems Division. The systems are to support various electronic warfare-related programs within Turkey.

"Together, CEESIM and SMS offer a complete end-to-end electronic warfare testing solution by providing Aselsan the ability to generate a highly realistic simulated environment while measuring how well the EW equipment operates within that environment," said Joe Downie, president of Northrop Grumman's Amherst Systems business unit.

"The Northrop Grumman CEESIM system is the most advanced radio frequency simulator on the market today."

CEESIM generates electromagnetic environments for the users to test and evaluate the performance of advanced electronic warfare systems such as radar warning receivers and electronic countermeasure systems.

It is reprogrammable and is can simulate radar and communications signals.

Northrop said the Signal Measurement System provides real-time RF measurement and analysis of threat emitters and system-under-test jammer responses. It can be used for hardware-in-the-loop, installed systems and open-air training range operations.
