ARES3100 Advanced Radar Environment Simulator

Bringing proven DRFM-based technology to an out-of-the-box simulator system

  • slide

Custom performance meets out-of-the-box availability

The ARES3100, an advanced radar environment simulator for testing, training and comprehensive performance evaluation, leverages decades of technological innovation and is a proven, more affordable alternative to flight testing. The standard product reduces development time without sacrificing performance and creates a safe and realistic environment.

Our simulators are ideal for testing configurations including anechoic chambers and laboratory-based production. Securely test radar systems with less risk of adversaries compromising sensitive waveforms. The ARES3100 is configurable for maximum flexibility to meet your radar development needs.

Features:

  • Robust GUI for simple operation
  • Configurable up to 4 simultaneous channels and 8 targets per channel
  • Model multiple targets with a high degree of signal realism

Robust Graphical User Interface

Understanding the results of radar testing requires a user-friendly interface that clearly describes the simulated environment. Mercury’s radar simulator illustrates the location and movement of the system under test, as well as a high number of targets, allowing you to develop ideal scenarios for a specific radar and compare the results for system optimization.

Features
  • Modular/configurable design
  • Windows-based graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Comprehensive BIT and calibration included in software

Operation

  • Up to 4 simultaneous channels
  • Up to 8 targets per channel
  • Each channel can be a target, ECM, clutter or chaff simulation
  • Wide variety of ECM techniques and target modulation
  • Instantaneous bandwidth of 850 MHz
  • Output power level base system equal to 0, other output levels available upon request
  • Controllable output power range of 100 dB, with 0.25 dB resolution
  • Hardware in the loop (HWIL) operations with radar
  • Real-time external or local host control
  • Real-time, runtime displays of SUT, targets, ECM, etc.
  • High-speed scenario update rate
  • Data logging for post-test correlation
Applications
  • Radar performance evaluation
  • ECM vulnerability assessment
  • Radar production testing
