BUFFALO, N.Y. – Aug. 31, 2016 – As part of its comprehensive customer support program, Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) hosted users of its Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) systems recently at meetings in the United States and the United Kingdom. The user community gathered to share best practices, collaborate with program engineers and discuss the future of combat system testing. This year’s meetings marked the tenth year Northrop Grumman has hosted the global user community.

Northrop Grumman Annual CEESIM User Meeting
Northrop Grumman employees Harold Screven, Bill Sitzman and Marc Greenbaum demonstrate the Advanced Pulse Generation (APG) capabilities of the CEESIM at the United States user meeting.

The CEESIM generates complex, dynamic electromagnetic environments to simulate true-to-war conditions for cost-effective testing and validation of electronic warfare systems. More information about CEESIM is available at http://www.northropgrumman.com/Capabilities/CEESIM/.

“Our commitment to the needs of our customers and the support of our product extends far beyond system delivery,” said Joe Downie, site director, Amherst Systems business unit, Northrop Grumman.  “Sitting down with our customers regularly allows us to work together on their most difficult challenges in electromagnetic testing.”

In addition to discussions with the Northrop Grumman engineering team, attendees received customized hands-on training and viewed real-time demonstrations of the latest CEESIM hardware and software enhancements. One technology on display at the New York meeting was Advanced Pulse Generation, an affordable solution that keeps testing capability ahead of next-generation receiver test requirements and can be included in new simulator designs or back-fit into existing CEESIM simulators as an upgrade.

At the user meeting in the U.K., the first delivered international multi-spectral laboratory hosted a demonstration of four systems operating simultaneously to create a true multi-spectral test environment. The demonstration included the CEESIM, Signal Measurement System, Synchronization Control Subsystem and Real-Time IR/EO Scene Simulator.
