12 September 2003 Installation of an IR/UV stimulation test system into the CECOM ISTF

Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems recently completed delivery of an IR/UV sensor stimulation and test system (STS) to the U.S. Army Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate's (I2WD) Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Installed Systems Test Facility (ISTF) at Ft. Monmouth, NJ. The STS consists primarily of a PC network controlling two ESL MEON(SIL) IR/UV stimulation units. The STS provides MIL-STD-1553B bus traffic monitoring for the Common Missile Warning System (CMWS) self-protection missile warning system. The sensor was tested in an uninstalled configuration; however, the stimulation system is capable of performing the same tests on an installed sensor suite. This paper will describe the STS architecture (both hardware and software), the technical challenges overcome during the program and the test capabilities of the system.
