At the request of the Government, the Request for White Papers for Interactive Communication Navigation and Identification (CNI) Radio Frequency Environment Simulator has been re-opened. The Statement of Need has been revised to provide updated specifications that clarify the need for software models of the three (3) threats of interest.
Success in current and future warfighting is increasingly dependent on airspace dominance. Our airborne platforms have an evolving need for superior situational awareness and counter-attack technology. In order to safely and successfully execute a mission, the pilot must have an awareness of threat CNI signals, be able to interact with those signals, and/or be able to evaluate System Under Test (SUT) effectiveness against those signals.
The United States Navy and the United States Air Force are requesting a test capability for CNI signals to interact with SUT signals to evaluate them for effectiveness. Multiple programs of record require the capability to test classified and advanced threat CNI signals in both open and closed-loop environments for multiple tests in FY22 and future years to mitigate risk associated with not previously evaluating new capabilities outside of a Modeling and Simulation environment for the latest high priority threats.
