Missile Warning System Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Operates a classified facility for research projects dedicated to the development of missile warning systems for the self-protection of Naval aircraft. Participates in exploitation measurements of missile signatures. Simulates the acquisition, guidance, and aerodynamic performance of threat missiles. Measures and models sensor responses to threat signatures as well as the performance of detection and declaration algorithms.DESCRIPTION: An extensive database of threat and background clutter signatures is maintained for developmental and fielded self-protection systems. Participation in field tests (missile live firings and overflights) ensures the data[HTML_REMOVED]s relevance to the developmental effort. Simulations of threat missile engagements along with simulations of system hardware permit predictions of system performance. Recent activities include support for the AN/AAR-47 Missile Warning Set and the NRL Tactical Aircraft Directed Infrared Countermeasures (TADIRCM) System.INSTRUMENTATION: Principal instrumentation consists of a network of computer workstations capable of hosting system data and the required system software simulations.
