This document describes the work of the project Future Electronic Warfare Duel Simulation during 2006 to 2008. The project uses and improves the multispectral framework EWSim (Electronic Warfare Simulation interface model) for distributed electronic warfare simulations. The framework consists of three parts, one for scenario planning and configuration, where models are configured and where some range calculations can be made, one for dynamic duels, and finally one assessment module where the duels can be replayed and logged data analyzed. EWSim has models of platforms, countermeasures, warners, sensors and missiles with target trackers and motion models. In 2006 a planning tool EWPlan has been developed. The planning tool currently gives coverage diagrams showing the influence of Electronic Warfare in various scenarios. A lot more theoretical work has been done, which can be implemented in the future. EWSim has been further developed with a number of generic models, e.g. a second generation anti tank missile and a generic direction finder for traditional direction finding and Time Difference of Arrival. Another example is UVwarners currently being implemented in the Swedish defense.
