T&E Scenario Generator
As defense platforms and the battlespace environment become more complex and congested, the way to test and validate systems and sub-systems of these platforms must evolve. Companies must now consider how these components, sub-systems, systems and system-of-systems are tested together in an environment that is as close to possible as the real-world. Unfortunately, testing these solely in the real environment is not only time-consuming and costly, but it also presents challenges including:
The ability to accurately represent the environment and a variety of elements such as weather, terrain, and red and blue forces
The potential to expose information by testing in open-air ranges
The T&E Scenario Generator brings together simulated environments, models and real systems at various levels of fidelity. The demonstration at the Farnborough Air Show will show how industry standards such as DIS and HLA, traditionally used within training environments and Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) systems, can be utilized by test systems, providing more accurate and complex test stimulus to real systems, as well as higher fidelity models to training environments.
Satellite Link Emulator
The rapid commercialization of Low Earth orbit (LEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO) has led to the introduction of modern satellite-based applications like non-terrestrial networks (NTN) and high-resolution remote sensing and imagery. The satellite constellations, ground equipment, and supporting launch vehicles designed to support these new services create new challenges in design, system validation, and production test.
NI’s Satellite Link Emulation Demonstrator shows engineers how to effectively address some of these challenges. The SLE is designed to validate next generation satellite datalinks by connecting simulation software with real-time hardware in the loop (HIL) test. By integrating the Ansys STK, the simulated links between satellite and ground stations allows for channel model parameters to be updated in real-time.
At NI, we bring together the people, ideas and technology so forward thinkers and creative problem solvers can take on humanity’s biggest challenges. From data and automation to research and validation, we provide the tailored, software-connected systems engineers and enterprises need to Engineer Ambitiously™ every day.
