The entire system is based on a relational database containing the targets, jammers, chaffs and environmental data (geographical conditions, weather conditions, sea state, etc.) that comprise each training scenario. Graphical, simple-to use interfaces allow instructors to modify or create new data in any of these categories, making almost any scenario not only possible, but easy to create.
Expensive, proprietary systems are no longer necessary to provide first-class training. KUARadSim uses modern technologies to achieve both an affordable price and an ease of maintenance unheard of with previous-generation radar simulators.
Physical Radar Model
KUARadSim implements a real physical model for radar modelling. The system can support any .dt1 or .dt2 formatted geographical data for radar modelling. Physical Radar Modelling, includes the specifications like, • STC (Sensitivity Time Constant) • FA (Frequency Agility) • AGC (Automatic Gain Control) • SCAN INTG (Scan Integration)
- Search (continuous scan, sector scan)
- Sart Beacon
KUARadSim supports tactical objects like targets, chaffs and jammers. All echo reflected by these objects are calculated by the real physical model. Some features of these objects are,
- Target dimensions, rcs (radar cross section) and rcs fluctuation models, surface type.
- Chaff dimensions, rcs, life time, blooming time.
- Jammer types (range obscuration, angle deception), effective radiated power, jammer frequency and bandwidth.
KUARadSim can be configured according to the customer’s requirements easily using user friendly GUI’s. The system can be integrated in a full-flight simulator or can be used as a standalone trainer. KUARadSim makes use of a high fidelity realistic physical radar model engine in order to simulate radar echoes and radar effects.
KUARadSim implements a weather model for any given operator selected weather conditions like clouds, rain, fog and snow. The system detects the thunderstorms and easily shows the safe way on the route.
Features, effects and parameters simulated include:
- Platform altitude, attitude and stabilization
- Range and atmospheric attenuation
- Antenna gain, scan rate, beam width, beam pattern and side lobes
- Surface material effects (reflectivity, directivity)
- Atmospheric refraction and earth curvature
- Aspect and masking (terrain, features, targets)
- Occultation and radar shadowing
- Far shore brightening
- Sea state
- Receiver sensitivity and gain
- Weather, chaff and jamming effects
- Sensitivity Time Control (STC), Automatic Gain Control (AGC)
- Noise (receiver, atmospheric, background)
- Transmitter power, frequency band
- Pulse width, PRF, PRI and pulse length effects
- Receiver detection and post detection integration
- Log compression
- Radar resolution and multiple range scales
- Weather Mode
- TWS (Track While Scan), ATT (Auto Target Tracking)
