BUFFALO, N.Y., May 29 (UPI) -- An indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity task order has been given to Northrop Grumman by the U.S. General Services Administration for a combat simulator.

The enhanced Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator, for the U.S. Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, is an advanced technology simulator that generates complex, dynamic electromagnetic environments to simulate true-to-war conditions.

It features an updated user interface and digital hardware optimized to produce greater pulse density for advanced threats. It is an off-the-shelf solution that integrates into the existing Simulation Network lab control system at WR-ALC and supports software maintenance and reprogramming of multiple electronic combat systems, including those onboard C-130 and F-16 aircraft.

"This represents the latest in a long history of CEESIM systems in use at Warner Robins," said Joe Downie, site director of Northrop Grumman's Buffalo, N.Y., Amherst Systems business unit. "This enhanced system ensures that the Air Logistics Center will continue to have a versatile test asset to support a variety of electronic warfare systems."

The CEESIM provides angle-of-arrival radio frequency simulation techniques, including phase, amplitude and time difference of arrival. It is an off-the-shelf solution that will seamlessly integrate into the existing Simulation Network lab control system at WR-ALC. The system also supports software maintenance and reprogramming of multiple electronic combat systems, including those onboard C-130 and F-16 aircraft.
