System Requirements and Hardware FAQ's


  • What radar effects are simulated by the MMRS?

  • Can we do our own tuning and reconfiguration to further customize the MMRS?
    There are a limited number of changes that can be made to the system configuration after delivery. For run-time efficiency, much of the tailoring and configuration is via source level parameters that are compiled into the executables and used in a proprietary manner that is not exposed to the end-users. However, the MMRS has been designed to be easily configurable so that most tuning and other common changes can be performed quickly and cost-effectively, without a need for new executables.

  • How are classified radar characteristics handled?
    The MMRS software itself never contains information such that it would need to be classified. Testing is performed with "dummy" data and the classified parameters are loaded at run-time, allowing the customer to create and keep complete control over the data at the simulator site.

  • How many targets can the MMRS support?
    A maximum of 5 simple (specify position, small/medium/large, and orientation) moving or stationary targets are included in the basic system for use with Real Beam Mapping modes. With the Target Option, the MMRS handles a maximum of 128 stationary and 16 moving targets active simultaneously in a single image. This option can be extended to support high definition models for high resolution modes. Targets have all the applicable spatial and radar effects as if they were database features. For more than 128/16 targets, additional processing load analysis and hardware upgrades may be needed.

  • How many storms can the MMRS handle? Can the user create their own weather patterns?
    Three simultaneous storms may be dynamically positioned when the Weather Option is selected. A library with 3 different patterns is provided with this option as well as a weather pattern editor for creating new storm patterns. For more than 3 storms, additional processing load analysis and hardware upgrades may be needed.

  • How many mission functions (e.g. target occult status) can the MMRS process?
    With its scalable, expandable architecture, the number of non-displayed, optional mission functions that can be supported by the MMRS is limited only by the hardware configuration.

  • Can the MMRS correlate with a visual system or other sensor systems comprising a flight simulator?
    Correlation is a function of a common database source, common earth mapping models, target range, geographic latitude, and computational accuracy. If a common database is used or an existing system's database can be exported to a standard format and the earth model is known, then a high degree of correlation between systems can be achieved.
