Radar Environment Simulators

Radar testing throughout the development process is critical to program success. However, range testing is not only expensive but introduces uncertainty as it is difficult to precisely control the environment. Utilizing a radar environment simulator addresses these issues and ensures that your radar system is prepared to achieve success under the most challenging operating conditions.

In addition to functioning as a simple target generator, radar environment simulators must also model electronic attack threats and ground reflections. At Mercury we leverage our experience developing DRFM-based electronic attack training solutions to provide a validated threat library to emulate the most complex jamming and deception techniques. Additionally, we provide high channel-count systems for accurate anechoic chamber testing as well as supporting direct injection to interface with the radar bus.

User-Friendly Interface

Understanding the results of the radar testing requires a user-friendly interface that clearly describes the simulated environment.

To support our customers, we’ve developed a tool that clearly illustrates the location and movement of the radar system under test as well as a high number of targets. This tool allows the user to develop a scenario ideal for a specific radar and then compare the results as the engineer optimizes the radar system.


Modular and Scalable 

Do you need a benchtop system for creating simple targets or do you need a multi-channel solution for complex radar testing in an anechoic chamber?

Since every new program is unique, a flexible radar environment simulation solution is required. At Mercury we develop our simulators around a modular DRFM architecture that can be scaled to increase the channel count or capability set.
