This report presents a summary of the work performed in 2015 within the project Future Electronic Warfare Duel Simulation funded by the Research and Technology (R & T) program Electronic warfare (EW). The primary goal of the project has been the development of tools and methodology for electronic warfare assessment. The tools combined with the methodology can be used to aid the development of tactics, techniques and procedures in preparation for and during future electronic warfare efforts. The final goal of the project is to demonstrate the developed methodology and tools. This is achieved through demonstrations and by participation in trials and exercises with the Swedish Armed Forces. Examples of general improvements in the EWSim framework are: ? Frequency hopping in conjunction with jamming. ? Radar warners in the planning tool. ? Coverage diagram for IRST. ? Improvements in batch run capabilities. ? Predefined configuration of platforms. ? Modelling of surveillance radar, target tracking and fast targets. ? Continued work on model of imaging seeker for air-to-air missiles. ? Continued work on model of target seeker for BVR air-to-air missiles. ? Target tracking radar can handle multiple targets. ? Improved visualization of water. ? Improved visualization of the sky and clouds. During 2015 project work has been presented at two conferences, one of them AOC EW Europe, and at the "Marinstridsdagarna".The tools have been demonstrated on several occasions. Continued work will include studies of future EW systems and the influence of weather on duels and continued work on models for wave propagation, multiple sensors tracking and ESM systems. Logging and analysis as well as visualization will still be important fields to study.
