tal processing and RF simulation have
more recently allowed far greater accuracy in determining the nature, range
and direction of waveforms. As a result,
location can be ascertained faster and
with far greater fidelity in an incredibly dynamic environment.

TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY DRIVING
FUTURE CAPABILITIES

The Journal of Electronic Defense | February 2014

It is not a far stretch between current-generation technology and a more
seamless, robust future capability. Several existing enablers are leading the
way.
Among these is direct playback of recorded data. The current conflicts have
demonstrated definitively the value of
direct playback for collaboration and
decision-making, as well as after-action
review. For example, full-motion video
streaming from unmanned aircraft systems revolutionized the acquisition
and exploitation of situational awareness information in the battlespace.
Technology is bringing us ever closer to
similar capability for recording, sharing and utilizing RF energy - not just
for training or test and evaluation, but
as an essential part of the decisionmaking process.
Augmented reality technology exists
today with such maturity and ubiquity that anyone with a smartphone
can explore and download a variety of
applications from voice modification
to photo manipulation. At its heart,
this technology exists purely to enhance the existing environment with
additional information, both known
and hypothetical. Simulation technology has advanced to a degree in which
assimilating reality and supposition
seamlessly and richly is not only possible, but is becoming less expensive
and time-consuming.
Digital data sharing democratizes
information across media in near real
time to reduce or eliminate stovepipes.
Experts or hardware assets across locations, from the lab to the battlefield,
are working in the same virtual environment. Further, digitization allows
data to be generated, shared, recreated
and reused with high confidence that
the results will be the same regardless
of location.

A high-fidelity, virtual EW battlespace will dynamically merge inputs across sensors and locations,
allowing unparalleled mission rehearsal and training capability.

Overarching these enablers are continued miniaturization and digitization
of technology. This is a double-edged
sword - these trends empower the enemy with easier and more affordable
access to commercial electronics that
can be exploited as weapons. Yet they
drive the warfighter as well, packing additional power and capability onto air,

land, sea and space platforms within
size, weight and power boundaries and
at a reasonable cost.

THE STATE OF SIMULATION
And where does electromagnetic
spectrum simulation itself stand today?
Simulation tools are utilized primarily
for test and training applications today,
