The input consists of user-supplied, engineering-level data, such as transmitter power, pulse width, pulse repetition frequency, antenna patterns, radar cross section (RCS) tables, and data needed to simulate pulsed/MTI, and PD processing. FPA mode requires aircraft flight data parameters to be specified for each data point. These parameters include altitude, heading, speed, bank, and pitch. Alternatively, the FPA mode can read a BlueMax output file for the flight path data. HDC mode requires a single aircraft speed and altitude. VDC mode only requires a single aircraft speed. Data sets for threat systems are available.
The output consists of an output file and a data diary file. The output file is an ASCII text file that includes a summary of the simulation inputs. For FPA mode, the output file also contains the target flight path information summary, which gives detailed information for the target, jammers, target masking, and radar detection at each target location. The data diary file contains the simulation results. Each simulation mode has its own data diary format. The data diary can be in ASCII or binary. The supporting post-processing programs use the data diaries for generating plots.
