The Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) has extended its well-known undersea range into the open air! AUTEC has installed an Electronic Warfare Threat Simulator (EWTS) system capable of illuminating air, surface, and submarine platforms in complex scenarios on the instrumented tracking range at Andros Island, Bahamas.

EWTS is a real-time system that will generate complex, dynamic, electromagnetic signal environments at the radio frequency (RF) level. With this system, AUTEC will offer capabilities to test different platform receivers in an open-air, over-the-water range.

The system consists of a radar simulator, pedestal and controller, antennas, high-power amplifiers, calibration equipment, and an operator workstation. The system is housed in an air-conditioned radome and located on a 74-foot tower.
