Systems and Analysis
Our researchers provide the U.S. Air Force with technical analyses on a broad range of issues impacting the needed capabilities of U.S. aircraft. For our sponsors, we assess the survivability of advanced U.S. Air Force aircraft versus modern air defenses, the impact of current and future electronic attack and electronic protection techniques, as well as the capability and limitations of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems. These analyses rely on a robust modeling and simulation capability for RF and infrared sensors, GPS, and laser systems. These modeling capabilities are continually validated through an active program of laboratory measurements and flight tests conducted with the Tactical Defense Systems Group.
