Paper Abstract

In this paper, a concept of Avionics Simulator is described. This simulator consists of six subsystems, which are a large scale flight table (LFT), a small but high precision flight table (HFT), a target simulator (TS), a central processing system (CPS), a central console (CC) an a large anechoic chamber. The LFT physically simulates an own-ship motion (roll-pitch yaw) and a Fire Control Radar (FCR) and an Inertia Reference System (IRS) are installed into the inner roll gimbal of the LFT. The HFT is used for test and evaluation of the IRS. The TS consists of a billboard array antenna and a target generator. This TS can simultaneously generate two targets under the sea clutter or the ground clutter and radiate RF target-echo signals from the billboard array antenna to the FCR. The CC can realtimely simulate a relative motion (6-degree-of-freedom) between own-ship and multi-targets and transfer an own-ship motion command to the LFT and also each relative range and velocity command to the target generator. The CC consists of an operational console, target and outer scene image generator and a projection screen (100 inches). Avionics Simulator can do Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing of the FCR and the IRS under synthetic environments preceding actual in-flight testing.
