Phased Array Radar Target Simulator
One of the Australian National Unviersity software engineering student projects displayed today was a Radar Target Simulator developed for CEA Technologies. Students previously productized software to test CEA's CEAFAR Active Phased Array Radar. The new project was to integrate this with other radar simulators using he simulation framework standard adopted is the High Level Architecture (HLA) and US Defense Modeling and Simulation Organization (DMSO) Real Time Infrastructure. This is not just a hypothetical exercise, the Australian Defence Force is investing heavily in a new surface fleet, made up of Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers and upgraded Anzac class frigates, with sophisticated phased radar, to protect the two Canberra class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) amphibious assault ships.
