24 May 1996 Signal generation techniques for MMW seeker HWIL simulation
Author Affiliations +
Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) simulation is an effective, low cost alternative to flight testing for performance evaluation and development of guided missile RF seekers. Accurate generation of a simulated RF environment including target and clutter return is of primary importance in creating a realistic HWIL simulation. This paper discusses the signal generation requirements for typical millimeter- wave seeker simulation and the hardware developed for their implementation. Special emphasis is placed on a device for computer-controlled I/Q modulation called a Digital Quadrature Modulator.
